What should my child bring to school?
Children are expected to wear school uniform (maroon sweatshirt for P1-P6 and blue sweatshirt for P7), black trousers, skirt or summer dress. Items of clothing with embroidered logos can be purchased by asking for a form at the office or during parent’s evenings. The Campie Community also may be able to help with second hand clothing, check the Parent Room to see if there if there’s anything your child’s size.
Children should come to school appropriately dressed according to weather conditions, for example: a warm waterproof jacket in winter, a sun hat in summer, wellington boots during stormy conditions, etc…
Children will also require a P.E Kit including: shorts or jogging bottoms, t-shirt, a change of socks and a pair of clean training shoes / plimsolls.
A school bag would be handy for children to carry library books, pencil cases (stationary should be provided at school) and other items to big to carry. Maroon reading bags are provided for transporting books and we expect children to bring their group reading books everyday.
A water bottle is required to stay hydrated through the day and children can fill this up at one of 2 water machines in the school. Children will also require a small healthy snack for between the start of the school day and lunch. Primary 1-2 will also have the opportunity for a piece of free fruit on Tuesdays-Thursdays. Milk can be ordered through the School Office to accompany snack.
If your child needs to bring in money for an excursion or some other kind of payment please put the money in an envelope with your child’s name, class, amount and what the money is for. Cheques should be made to East Lothian Council. Payments can also be accepted online here.
What about school lunches?
Our school has a range of tasty nutritious lunches.
Each child in Primary 1-5 is entitled to a free school meal. You should still register for Free School meals to ensure our school can receive the maximum equity funding from the Scottish Government.
The price of a school meal is £2.05 and can be paid online.
Please order Friday packed lunches by Wednesday to avoid disappointment.
If you think your circumstances entitle you to a free school meal then you should visit the East Lothian Council website to check. If you do qualify, please fill in this form and return to Office Staff. This also entitles your child for free school milk if they so wish.
How will my child get to school?
Campie is big on being eco and we encourage walking where possible. If however you need to take the car we ask that you observe the road markings outside the school gates and do not use the car park towards the back of the school as it is reserved for those with accessibility needs.
A lollipop person is on duty before and after school and our JRSOs are on hand to answer any questions children might have about road safety.
Children are expected to be collected from school at the appropriate times. If a different person is collecting your child can you please let staff know as so they can ensure the child gets home safely. Children in Primary 4 and over can walk home alone but it is advised to walk with a friend.
