Inspection Report

Dear Parents and Carers,

Inspection of St Cuthbert’s Primary School

The City of Edinburgh Council

I attach a PDF version of the letter prepared by HM Inspectors following the inspection of our school.

The letter has been published on the Education Scotland website at today and the Summarised Inspection Findings will follow at a later date.

As I stated in my the recent newsletter I am delighted with the findings of the inspection team who have acknowledged and praised key strengths of our school.  For me the major factor contributing to our success is the dedication and commitment of staff, our inclusive, nurturing, catholic ethos and of course our enthusiastic and hard-working children and the support of their families.

Thank you.

New Speed Limits



Phase 2 of the rollout of a 20miles per hour (mph) speed limit goes live on 28 February 2017.   The second phase is the largest construction phase in the scheme  stretching from Granton to Portobello, Duddingston to Morningside, Gorgie to Murrayfield.


You can find out if your street is changing to 20mph by checking our interactive map.


The introduction of the new 20mph limit relies on signage and road markings alone.  Existing speed humps or other traffic calming will remain unchanged.  Larger 20mph signs will mark the entrance and exit of a 20mph area where the speed limit changes.  These signs will be supplemented by smaller repeater signs or road markings with speed limit roundels.


While many cities in the UK, Europe and beyond have already brought in 20mph (or 30km), Edinburgh is the first city in Scotland to roll out 20mph limits in this way, with many other areas, including East Lothian, keen to bring in slower speeds.


Slower speeds bring many benefits to places and people. They help to reduce the risk and severity of collisions, encourage people to walk and cycle and spend more time in an area. The project extends 20mph speed limits to approximately 80% of Edinburgh’s streets, while retaining a network of roads at 30mph and 40mph on key arterial routes.
