We look forward to welcoming all of our pupils back on Monday (22nd August 2016) and extend a warm welcome to new pupils and families. We would also like to wish our former P7’s a successful first day at High School.
Lifelong Learning and Employability: Summer programme for adults and families.
Welcome to the Midlothian Council Lifelong Learning and Employability summer programme for adults and families. We are offering a wide range of short programmes. They stand alone but many of them are tasters for courses you and your family can do starting in September. These sessions are for anyone living in Midlothian.
We know that for many people the summer is a really busy time. If you find something in here that you are really interested in, but cannot make our sessions, please let us know on the form and we will keep in touch when we have a date for a similar programme.
Please see attached link for more information.
We would encourage you to check your child’s hair for lice regularly and treat as required. Please also see some helpful information from the NHS on the links below:
Treatments are provided free of charge (for some) on the Minor Ailments Scheme in your local Pharmacy or on GP prescription.
Please also contact our school nurse for further advice.
Thank you to everyone who supported our ‘Visible Learning’ Market Place this morning. Was so nice to see such a buzz about our children’s learning. If you didn’t make it along this morning you will get some information home in your child’s school bag.

As some of you will be aware we have been seeking donations to allow us to start a gardening club within the school. One of our mum’s Laura Diamond has been busy contacting local and national companies in order to seek donations of tools, seeds and other gardening equipment.
We are delighted to share the news with you that Laura’s hard work has paid off. We have received the following:
-Tesco Hardengreen – tools, seeds and compost.
-B&Q fort Kinnaird –£70 of plants and tools.
-Marshalls, Grow wild, RHS, Suttons, Heinz & Seed parade All donated Packets of Seeds.
-Toni Abram (www.centronuclear.org.uk) donated 500 sunflower seeds.
Dobbies garden world – an amazing £500 to spend on our sensory garden for the nursery.
This is an amazing achievement and we wish to thank Laura for her efforts. Please look out for opportunities to get involved, we will also be at the school fair with some ideas to get you started.
A HUGE Thank You to Dobbies.

As we stated on Monday, as well as ongoing routine surveys of our school estate, further inspections began in March 2016.
This was in response to the situation in Edinburgh where, you will be aware, structural defects have been identified in some buildings.
Our inspections are now complete and no major structural issues have been identified. As would be anticipated, routine maintenance repairs were highlighted and these will be carried out as quickly as possible.
In light of the further information coming from the Edinburgh schools situation, a phase of selective tests and surveys will take place in the coming weeks in some of our buildings to provide further re-assurance. These findings will also be shared with you.
The safety of our pupils, staff and building users are our highest priority.
If anyone has any concerns please don’t hesitate to contact:
