Welcome to session 2020-2021 at Gullane Primary School. We hope that you managed to have a good break.
It has been rather a strange start to the term as we get used to following guidance designed to keep us all safe and healthy. We would ask that you support us in this by maintaining a social distance around the school and not gathering in groups. To help with the above, we would ask that, wherever possible, you arrange a drop-off and pick-up point, outwith school grounds, for your child/ren that ensures that you can socially distance from other parents/carers and children from other classes. We are aware that this has been made a little more difficult as a result of the loss of a gate due to construction work.
As you know, we have changed the school hours to minimise the time children are in the playground and these are as follows:
|Monday to Thursday||P1, P1/2 and P2 of P2/3||08:45 – 10:35||Break||10:55 – 12:20||Lunch||12:50 – 14:25|
|P3 of P2/3 and P3||08:45 – 10:35||Break||10:55 – 12:20||Lunch||12:50 – 15:05|
|P4, P4/5, P5/6, P6 and P7||08:45 – 10:35||Break||10:55 – 12:35||Lunch||13:05 – 15:05|
|Friday||P1, P1/2 and P2 of P2/3||08:45 – 10:35||Break
|10:55 – 12:15|
|P3 of P2/3, P3, P4, P4/5, P5/6, P6 and P7||08:45 – 10:35||Break||10:55 – 12:05|
If you need to contact your child/ren’s class teacher/s you should, in the first instance, contact the school office.
We will keep these arrangements under review in light of any guidance that we receive.
MENTAL HEALTH PHONE LINE
The Mental Health Line service is for people aged 18 and over (including people over 65). People who are feeling anxious, depressed or have other worries about their mental health can call the line between 09.00 and 16.00 Monday to Friday. An experienced worker will take their details and make an appointment for them to speak to a specialist mental health practitioner, who will ring them back at a mutually convenient time within the following 36 hours. The practitioner will assess the person over the phone, and provide help and support and sometimes a referral on to other services.
