Please stay and see how well your child is progressing in numeracy. Don’t worry if you did not send back the slip-just come along. We love having you.

School and nursery open as usual Thursday 19 September

Dear parents

 As you know, today we had a problem with our heating in parts of the building and the children were accommodated in the school gym hall or with our friends and neighbours at the Burgh Primary School.

Engineers have visited and specialist cleaning and testing has taken place. The problem is resolved and we have been assured there is not, nor was, any risk to staff or pupils. We are grateful to our colleagues across  East Lothian for the swift support to ensure our comfort and safety and to our school staff for ensuring the children have also had a day of learning.

School and nursery will be OPEN as normal tomorrow Thursday 19th September.

Many thanks for your patience and support.

Well done boys and girls!

WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK MONDAY 13th May

Better weather, bright mornings and walking to school is here again! School bus people , you are already being eco friendly by all coming to school safely on ONE bus! Well done. For everyone else living in Musselburgh-make a big effort and Walk to School. It’s better for the environment and for our own kids establishing healthy life habits. This reduces traffic around the school. We know children are very concerned about the climate and damage to our planet.

If it’s just too far-please consider walking some of the way! Each class will have a chart and stickers to recognise the effort.

For parents -take a look at this website for ideas and information for you as a family.
