After school club

ELCC payments

Good afternoon 

Please ignore this post if it does not concern you

The ELCC DD will be collected next week as normal and then suspended until further notice. 

If you are a voucher payer please do not transfer any further funds at this time we will be in touch in due course.

The same applies to parents/carers who pay for Breakfast Club and Out of School Care.

Kind regards

Mrs Webb

Closure – Friday 20th March 2020

Please note that following recent updates this afternoon from Highland Council and the Scottish Government Holm Primary, including Holm ELCC will be closing at 3pm on Friday March 20th. This includes our after school provision.

Mrs Webb or Miss Cowie will be contacting affected ELCC and OOSC families in the morning but please feel free to share ahead of this.

Apologies in advance of any inconvenience caused.

Infection Control

As of tomorrow 17.03.2020 all pupils entering the ELCC building for Breakfast Club, Nursery provision and leaving after Out of School Care will need to be dropped off or collected at/from the main door.

We trust that you understand the need to restrict the amount of additional people entering the environment in order to minimise the chance of any possible infection.

Additional staff will be on hand to help children change their shoes and wash hands before their session starts.

Thank you for your cooperation with this matter at this challenging and unsure time.

Mrs Webb, on behalf of the ELCC team.

Holm ELCC Care Inspectorate update

Our Early Learning and Childcare Centre (ELCC) was recently inspected by the Care Inspectorate as part of their ongoing evaluation regarding the quality of the service we provide.

A copy of the Inspection Report can be found here or in the Policy Folder in the ELCC cloakroom.

Thank you to everyone who returned questionnaires and gave feedback on our service to the Care Inspectorate.

We were delighted with the results of the inspection and shall be addressing some of the feedback we received during the coming months – watch this space!



ELCC December Newsletter

Our Early Learning and Childcare December newsletter is available here or on the Newsletter tab on the main website. This contains information for both Nursery and Out of School Care.


A warm welcome to our UHI students.

We are delighted to welcome 3 students from UHI to Holm Primary.

They will be working in the ELCC building and Primary 1 for 2 days a week for the rest of the session.

As part of their studies for HNC in childhood practice, they are required to undertake observations of their children during daily activities as a method of enabling them to develop their practice and gather evidence for tasks and assessment.

To respect parents individual preferences and prevent the risk of sensitive information being available out with the placement setting, in line with the General Data Protection Regulations (2018) and Confidentiality policies and procedures we ask that parents notify us if they would prefer that their child/children is/are not included in any of the student’s work.

Nursery parents have already signed permissions for this as part of enrolment.

Please be reassured  that the students will be upholding the SSSC Codes of Practice (2016) in order to maintain professional standards and quality practice throughout their placement.

Please contact Mrs Webb if you have any questions.
