Milk Money for Session 2015/2016

We have recently received notification from East Lothian Council that the charge for school milk will be £32.30 for the year for session 2015/2016. Please note the charge to parents for school milk is reduced by the School Milk Subsidy received by East Lothian Council from the European Community.

All money must be sent for each child in a sealed envelope with their name, class and “Milk Money” written on the front. Cheques should be made payable to “East Lothian Council”. You can also pay online using the link www.eastlothian.gov.uk/payforit and select “Primary School Milk Payments” from the menu. Please note the new free school meals scheme for P1-P3 does not include free milk. Pupils receiving free meals under the benefits system automatically qualify for free milk.

We plan to collect the money, as usual, over 3 terms and in order to spread the cost over the session, the amounts are as follows:

Term 1 – £13.60 (to be collected on 18 June 2015)**
Term 2 – £8.84 (to be collected on 10 December 2015)
Term 3 – £9.86 (to be collected on 17 March 2016)

We have decided to collect the money in advance for each term. **Money for Term 1 needs to be collected before the end of this session to ensure your child receives his/her milk from the first day of next term. The amount for Term 1 is greater due to it being the longest term. If you have any difficulties with this, please do not hesitate to contact the school. Paying the full amount of £32.30 for the year is acceptable.


Letters will be going out shortly to all nursery pupils who will be starting school in  Primary 1 next session.


We would like to welcome all children, parents/carers and staff from Levenhall Nursery School who joined us at Pinkie this week.  The children and staff have settled in very well to their new accommodation.

As already advised, the gate to the nursery at the main entrance to the school will be open at the following times:

8.30 – 8.45 am
11.45 – 12.00 pm
12.45 – 1.00 pm
4.00 – 4.15 pm

At all other times please access nursery through the main entrance to the school.

In the interests of safety, and as parking is limited, please park outwith the school grounds when dropping off and collecting pupils from nursery and school.
