P6 & P7 Virtual Summer School

Calling All P6 & P7 Pupils- see the poster below for an exciting virtual summer school being offered by Queen Margaret University.


  • To engage primary pupils in the idea of higher education to those who perhaps will not see this as a path for them.
  • To raise aspirations and broaden horizons to show them possible future careers.
  • To aid transition into high school with pupils from East & Midlothian primary schools invited.
  • To engage pupils back into learning, through fun workshops and activities, after the recent extended time away from school.


The First Minister has just reiterated that following the closure of schools, childcare being established in each local authority is emergency provision for frontline keyworkers where there is no-one else in the house to look after your child and no other alternative. East Lothian will be opening a small number of Children’s Hubs but we need to ensure that those parents who really need a place get it. Please help us and don’t apply for a place unless it is absolutely essential. We are required to keep numbers in the hubs to an absolute minimum and will be prioritising Category 1 keyworkers in the first instance.
