Can you HELP?

Mrs Paterson is hoping to start back up a running club with some of the children on a Thursday afternoon from 3:20 – 4:20. We are looking for some help from any parents/carers/members of our wider community who would fancy coming and running with us.

We will be starting from scratch and hope to build up to running 5km and maybe even attending a race. So you don’t need to be an athlete!! That being said, we would LOVE to welcome any experienced runners that could help challenge some of our faster runners!

Google Classroom Launch

The way we report to parents is changing! Come along on Wed 7th Feb from 3-3:30pm to our Google Classroom launch.

You will be able to check it online from home, see pictures and videos and find out up to date info on your child’s progress.

As school reports are very important to share information on your child’s progress, we hope to see as many parents/carers as possible.

Looking forward to seeing you there – Thanks 🙂

Playtime in the snow

Mrs Campbell and the children had so much fun yesterday at playtime and lunchtime.

SNOW!!

WE ARE OPEN

It is very cold and white outside but the roads all around school have been well gritted and seem clear. Jim the janitor is out with his snow shovel right now clearing the pavements. As always take care when travelling to school in this wintery weather and we hope to see you wrapped up warm at 8:50am. Image result for snow clipart

Have You Registered?

Is your child eligible for free school meals, and if so, have you registered?
Schools receive additional funding of £1,200 from the Scottish Government for every pupil in P1 to S3 who is registered for free school meals. This is called Pupil Equity Funding, and schools use this additional money to help fund a wide range of initiatives to support achievement and provide the best possible opportunities for children’s learning.
 
How do I know if my child is eligible for free school meals?
Please visit our website www.eastlothian.gov.uk  to check your eligibility and download an application form.
 
Even if your child does not wish to take up the option of having a free school meal every day, we would encourage you to register so that your child’s school will receive the Pupil Equity Funding allowance to support their learning.
