Parent and Carer Drop-in

parent drop in

We held our second parent and carer drop-in of the session this week, and it was lovely to see everyone who came to visit our classes.

We hope you enjoyed your visit! This was the first time we have held a drop-in on a day other than a Friday, after feedback that a different day would be preferred by some of our parents and carers.

The next drop-in will be on Friday 6th March, from 11.25am for P1-P2, and from 11.55am for P3-P7.

Look out for a chance to give your feedback on when we hold these drop-ins, after the March event.

Here are some pictures of this week’s drop-in!

Building Resilience- Make A Difference

Image result for building resilience make a difference

Yesterday we held our launch assembly for the next unit in our school ‘Building Resilience’ programme, called ‘Make A Difference.’

Through this unit, the children will learn that they can begin to solve some of the problems in the world. By starting with a small idea or with something they care deeply about, children can contribute to making a difference. We know that when we connect to something bigger than ourselves, we feel fulfilled and have a greater sense of purpose.

Please see below for the parent and carer leaflet for this unit, as well as information to support with the Home Task attached to this unit too.

Composite Class Survey

Image result for survey

City of Edinburgh Council are consulting with parents, carers, school staff and pupils around our current guidance for selecting pupils for a composite class.


Composite classes are a normal part of primary school education in Scotland and have become more common.  The maximum class size for a composite class is 25 pupils.  This applies to all composite classes in Scotland, regardless of the age and number of year groups within the class.


In Edinburgh, when planning composite classes, year groups are not normally be split 3 ways, for example, a P2 year group would not be split into P1/2, P2 and P2/3. A split of P1/2 and P2/3 would be acceptable.  


Headteachers are responsible for organising a composite class.  Currently in Edinburgh, the main criterion for selecting pupils for a composite class is age – so the oldest pupils from the younger year group will be grouped with the younger children from the older year group.  In other words, we use date of birth as our main criterion. Head Teachers may also consider the gender balance of the classes and pupils in each stage.


We invite you to participate in our survey – this can be accessed by clicking on the link below or copying and pasting it into your web browser.




The survey will be open until Sunday 26th January 2020.   

Thank you.
