Nursery enrolment: Enrol your child by 6 March 2020
Families with a child born between 1 March 2017 and 28 February 2018 are being encouraged to enrol their child in nursery before 6 March 2020 for 2020/21.
Older children, or those who have not yet registered for an early learning and childcare place, should also register by this date.
To register for a place:
- Visit www.eastlothian.gov.uk/nurseryenrolment and find out about the different options available in council nursery settings from August 2020.
- Download a nursery registration form from the website.
- Complete the form and take it to your preferred (first) choice nursery. You should also take your child’s birth certificate.
- If you are choosing a blend of more than one provider, apply to your council nursery first and then speak to your funded provider – private nursery, childminder or community group – about what hours you would like from them.
- Make sure your application is in before 6 March 2020. Applications will still be accepted after this date, but they will not be considered in the first allocation process. Please get in touch with the Early Years and Childcare team if you have any questions or you can’t register by 6 March 2020.

Wishing you all a very happy Christmas from everyone here in Loretto.
Thank you so much for all your kindness to myself and all staff.
We have had a lovely time with music, parties and Christmas crafts and fayre. It has been lovey to see so many parents in school and church with us. We love having you join us.To the panto and party helpers-we couldn’t do it without you!
Thank you for the generous donations to school fund of £226 from the Nativity. This will go towards transport for outings and events and little extras for the children.
Again thank you for your generous donations for Christmas Jumper Day to Save the Children of £152.50.
Our special best wishes to Mrs MacDonald and Mrs Peebles as they begin their respective maternity and career break. We wish you both a happy and healthy year.
School finishes tomorrow and starts again for pupils on Wednesday 8th January.
We are sharing our learning and reporting to parents Tuesday 8th October and Thursday 10th October. Parents are invited into classes 9.15am till 10.20am. You will be able to see the children working on their numeracy and explaining it to you. Teas and coffees are being served in the dining hall from the morning bell-to let us register the children. 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.
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!

We look forwards to welcoming all pupils back to school on Wednesday 14th August at 8.50am. New P1s start at this time too and stay a full day from the very first day.
Check these out for low cost fun for kids and families over the holidays!
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.
In response to enquiries or concerns from a few parents regarding police activity near the school yesterday 21.3.19 please be reassured by this official message received from Police this afternoon.
Police Scotland conducted enquiries into this alleged report and it was found that no crime had been committed whatsoever. Please be assured that, if there had been any such incident, we would have released information about it and provided relevant safety advice.
Many thanks for your concern.
