Change to Booking Code for Multisport Club – Message from Fiona Damen for P3-7 Parents

Dear Parents/Carers,

There has been a problem with  the code used for booking places in the Multi sports club  !  ☹ I have had to make a new code and it is now STA-123    so anyone who wants to book this club  has to enter code STA -123  

Really do apologise for the inconvenience, we will have a new booking system next term.

Free Bus Travel & Crossing Patrol

Dear Parent/Carer

From 31 January, 5–21 year olds living in Scotland will be eligible for free bus travel across Scotland with a valid National Entitlement Card. You can apply from 10 January 2022. However, in light of high levels of COVID-19 transmission, the Scottish Government is asking that you only apply for the scheme at this point if it is essential* that you, or your child, travel while restrictions are in place.  All other eligible applicants will be proactively encouraged to apply at a later date.

*There is no prescribed list of what constitutes essential travel – it will differ for different children, young people and families. But it might include travel for education, training, work, care or health reasons.

Even if your child already has a National Entitlement Card or Young Scot National Entitlement Card,  they must apply for a new or replacement card to travel by bus for free. 

You can visit the Transport Scotland website to find out how to apply and more.  Please also see two further helpful links below:

Staying Safe

Please follow the latest Scottish Government COVID19 guidance at all times.

Crossing Patrol

On another subject, our Crossing Patrol Officer is currently self-isolating. City of Edinburgh Council have arranged cover for today but can’t guarantee that this will be the case for the remainder of the week. We will update and advise the pupils as to the safest way to cross the road on their way home each day via their teachers depending on crossing patrol situation.

Kind regards
