Returning to School
We are looking forward to welcoming P4-P7 back to school on Monday the 15th March. The pupils may have mixed emotions about returning to school. Some may be excited to see their friends, while others may be feeling anxious. The NHS have prepared a support document, to help parents and carers, through the transition back to school.
Here is a reminder of how to log-in to Microsoft Teams.
February Holiday Activity Grids and Orienteering
We know that you have all been working hard, and online learning involves a lot of screen time, so we have provided lots of ideas for fun outdoor tasks. We have included some orienteering you can try around the East Craigs area too! There is a video below with instructions to help you to use the orienteering app (MapF Run). Have a lovely, restful February holiday!
Here is the video to help you take part in some orienteering.
TEAMS INSTRUCTIONS FOR P4-7
For all Primary 4-7 children, here is our “Pupil and parent Guide to using Microsoft Teams”. Please get in touch if you have any questions or problems.
Christmas Holiday Information for Parents/ Carers
During the school holidays, if your child has had a positive test result for Covid-19 please call 0131 200 2000 to let us know, rather than contacting the school directly.
Welcome from the Head Teacher:
Welcome to our school. East Craigs is a busy and vibrant school with a welcoming and inclusive ethos. Our roll is currently 485, from Nursery to Primary 7, and there is a strong sense of community across the school.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to high quality learning and teaching, where pupils are active participants in planning and evaluating their progress. We aim to develop happy, confident and resilient young people who are equipped with the skills necessary for successful learning and their future life and work beyond primary school.
At East Craigs we celebrate diversity and value every individual and the contribution they make to the school. We value open, mutually respectful relationships and our staff team works closely in partnership with all parents and carers to meet the needs of our learners.
Please have a look at the pages and documents on this website to find out more about the school. If further information is required, or you would like to enquire about a place at the school for your child, please contact us on 0131 3397115 or by email to email@example.com. I would be delighted to speak with you to discuss any questions you may have about the life and work of East Craigs Primary School. Thank you.
Mrs Sheila Scott
What to bring to school:
- A waterproof jacket
- Sturdy footwear (could be wellies, school shoes or trainers)
- Indoor shoes (keep these in school)
- Dry socks (optional, but helps with wet feet!)
- A filled water bottle
- Only one bag – pupils are keeping their belongings at their desk, so this helps keep belongings tidy
- Remember, we are not changing for PE at the moment, and PE lessons are all outside, so wear joggers or shorts with your school polo shirt and sweatshirt.
