P1 Curriculum Evening


P1 held a very successful Curriculum Evening this week.

Our new P1 parents got a chance to meet the P1 teachers and find out about how P1 will be organised for the upcoming session.

For those who could not attend, the presentation used by the staff can be found here-

20 mph Zones

We have been asked to share the following information with you-

Edinburgh 20mph Speed Limits – Go Live

From Sunday 31 July, the legal speed limit in streets across much of Edinburgh’s city centre and rural west area went down to 20mph, the first phase in a planned rollout of lower speeds across the Capital.

The new speed limits are designed to increase safety for all road users in Edinburgh as well as creating a calmer, more people-friendly environment in shopping and residential streets. A network of key arterial roads across the city will be retained at 30mph and 40mph, resulting in a modest impact on journey times overall.

Our phased 20mph rollout between now and early 2018 brings to fruition many years of planning and public consultation and the network has been designed in line with robust criteria in partnership with key stakeholders such as Police Scotland and Lothian Buses.

Police Scotland will enforce the new limit, focusing on areas where particularly high levels of contraventions are recorded. Anyone caught breaching the limit risks a £100 fixed penalty and three penalty points on their licence.

We have long recognised that a majority of city residents want to see speed limits reduced in the city centre, around residential areas and in busy shopping streets.

Phase 1 ‘go live’ marks the start of sharing these benefits right across the Capital.

Further information and a detailed map of the 20mph network is available at edinburgh.gov.uk/20mph or visit our Facebook page at Facebook.com/edin20mph
