Edinburgh Child Protection Committee and NSPCC Scotland are working together to design a city wide campaign on neglect. As part of this we are keen to develop a better understanding of what parents in Edinburgh understand by the term neglect, what they would do if they suspected a child was being neglected and where families access support with parenting. We have created a short survey to do this, which should take between five and ten minutes to complete. By completing this survey, you are helping us ensure that the final campaign will be relevant to all families and contribute towards keeping all children in the city safe. Closing date for responses is 18 March.
If you are able to support our school either with a regular commitment of time or to help with class outings and sporting events, please contact the school office for further information.
Congratulations to our team of P5’s and 6’s for reaching the final of Marty’s Coding Party. They competed against 31 other teams to reach the final six. The final will take place at Foresters High School on Monday the 18th June.
Abbey, Jamie, Yusef, Charlie, Kirsty and Rania programmed a Greatest Showman themed dance routine in the Scratch programming language. They then videoed Marty executing the moves and created an iMovie, which was entered into the competition.

An enormous thank you to all our parents, carers, childminders, former pupils and members of the community who gave freely of their time this weekend to clear the snow, ensuring that school could open on Monday.
There was a great community spirit among all the hard work. Your time and effort is very, very much appreciated.
