Mrs Legge wanted to send you something to share and celebrate the work that has been happening within our school communities over the last fortnight. This has no doubt been a challenging time, but I want to thank pupils, parents and staff alike for their commitment and efforts in engaging with remote learning and all the contributions that you have made.
We know that learning takes many forms, and that as well as engaging with online tasks, learning has been happening within and around the home in lots of ways.
We hope you enjoy the presentation attached, thank you once again for all your support
- Head Teacher
We are delighted to be welcoming Mrs Jo Legge to the team as our new Head Teacher, Mrs Legge will be joining us after the Christmas break but the children may see her around the school before then as she is hoping to come up for a visit next week.

This will take place on Wednesday 9th December – if you have not pre-ordered a Christmas lunch please can you provide your child with a packed lunch. All orders should have been made by Monday 30th November.
- Christmas Cards
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic we are unable to distribute Christmas Cards this year and have been asked to discourage the children from bringing cards in to school – we appreciate that this may be disappointing, however we adhere to guidelines.

With current COVID-19 restrictions on parents entering East Lothian Council school buildings, it will not be possible for parents to visit their catchment school to enrol their child for the P1 intake in August 2021.
East Lothian Council’s Education Service are currently looking at alternative options for the P1 enrolment this year. Further information regarding P1 enrolment will be available soon.
