Evaluating Our School

rookieWe all work together to evaluate our school and to think about the things we can do to make our school even better.  We share our developments in a document called a Standards and Quality Report.  We work together with children and families to find out what everyone thinks about our school and we make a document for children in child friendly language too.  If you would like any more information about either of these documents please contact us in school.

Standards and Quality Report 2015-16




We’re starting to tweet about some of the things that are going on around school.  You’ll find us at @OrmistonPrimary.  Let us know if you like anything we post by favouriting our posts or retweeting them.  We also tweet from @OPS_Camp when the children are away at school camp.  Hopefully we’ll hear from you soon!  Thanks.

East Lothian Small School Cross Country Champions!

Congratulations to our team of superstars who raced in Dunbar today. Everyone was fantastic and they were geared up for the race by the number one motivational speaker Mr. Max Tomlinson! Well done to Jack Renton in P4 who was third in the boys race overall.  The competition for places in the team was tight so well done to everyone for representing us so well.






Free School Meals for children in Primary 1, 2 and 3

Children in P1, 2 and 3

We received the following information from East Lothian Council today and your child will be bringing a letter home with a section to fill in.  We’d be really grateful if you could return it to school tomorrow.  This will allow us to organise catering arrangements.  Thank You.  PLease click on this link if you would like to download a copy of the letter.  Free School Meals for Children in P1
