Once again, may we remind everyone that the school car park is for the use of school staff and visitors to the school only and parents/carers are NOT permitted to use the car park, unless by prior agreement with the the school office or  SLT. There is a real health and safety risk. There are plenty of spaces ay Hallhill.
We would really appreciate your support in trying to make this better. Also please do not park in the Disabled parking
bay unless you have made an arrangement with the school.



Venturing Out

Please see below details from Venturing Out CIC with information on what is available as part of their summer holiday programme being run in partnership with the Council’s Outdoor Learning Service.  The activities went live for booking from 6pm on Friday 6th May 2022


We are noticing an increase in the number of children that are being taken out of school for family holidays during term time. Whilst we appreciate that sometimes this is unavoidable, we would like to remind parents that permission to take holidays during term time MUST be requested from the Head Teacher in writing. Generally, unless there are exceptional circumstances, family holidays in
term time will be unauthorised and marked as such on a child’s Attendance Record.


Parents Portal is a new way for parents to access information on their children, interact with their school and easily access other school services. By using a single login, parents will be able to update
their own and their children’s details, report absences, look up their children’s reports, access SchoolPay, the school calendar and much more.


Just a reminder that our school uniform, which is
supplied by Patricia Bewsey Designs, is available to
order on line at: www.garmentprinter.co.uk
or by phone: 07970920431 or facebook.com/PatriciaBewseyDesign
Patricia supplies a number of schools in the East Lothian
area so please be aware that she is very busy during the
run up to the summer holidays.
