The council are proposing cuts across South Lanarkshire, one of these cuts is the reduction of hours for school janitors. The councils plan is to remove school janitors within school open times, and only have a janitorial service between 0730-900am and 1500-1630 hrs. This will only be affecting schools with less than 100 pupils. Unfortunately this includes Quarter Primary.
Janitors have a key role within the school of ensuring maintenance and safety within the school. When janitors are removed who will take on these roles. Items needing repaired will have to wait until an able person arrives. If areas are needing cleaned this will fall to teaching staff, taking them away from whatever task they are doing and therefor impacting onto the children's education.
The children's extra curricular activities such as football will also no longer continue, which giving the success we have had over the past couple of years and the enthusiasm the children have towards it would be such a shame.
I'm asking everyone to please come together and support us in this by signing our petition.
Thank you very much for reading and please help us get our voice heard.
