Sports Day 2023

Dear Parents/Carers

Sports’ Day will be held on Thursday 1st June and will involve all pupils from P1 to P7.  Some important information to note about the day:

All pupils should arrive at school for the usual time of 8:55am and go up to their class.  Our school sports is set up as a number of different activities which take place in a circle on the school field. We will be setting up equipment on the grass from 8:00am and would appreciate your support in keeping all pupils off the grass, making sure that they use the footpath to access the school playground.

P1, P2 and P3 Sports

After registration P1-3 classes will assemble on the grass beside the playground and the event will begin at 9:30am.  We expect to finish at about 10:45am.  At the end of the sporting events, pupils will be escorted back to class by their teacher and parents and carers will leave by one of the main routes.

P4, P5, P6 and P7 Sports

This will begin at 1:45pm and finish around 3:00pm.  Again, after the event parents and carers can leave by one of the main gates and pupils will be escorted back to class.  If parents of pupils in P4-7 wish to collect their child at 3pm, please alert the class teacher and wait in the main playground so that pupils can first collect their belongings from the classroom where they will be de-registered before they leave.


Please note that there is no available parking within the school grounds and parking near the school is extremely limited by double yellow lines.  Please avoid blocking the access for local residents around the school.  E-scooters are not permitted within the school grounds.

Sports Wear and water bottles

Pupils should come to school dressed in an outdoor sports kit (wearing house colours if possible – Seton; green, Hailes; red, Fa’side; blue and Winton; yellow) with appropriate outdoor trainers.  Football strips/colours are not acceptable as part of the kit.  As the weather is unpredictable please provide a jumper and a coat for your child and a hat and sunscreen if sunny.  If weather is inclement please also provide a change of clothes so children can change into dry kit if required.

Please ensure that your child has a full water bottle for the day.

Please note that East Lothian Council prohibits smoking (including e-cigarettes) and the consumption of alcohol in the school grounds.  Dogs are not permitted to enter the school grounds.

We hope that the weather will not let us down, but in the event that we have to cancel Sports Day parents will be notified by text message before 9am.

We are looking forward to seeing you all on the day!
