The PC committee met online with Mr Wilson on 13th May to discuss the transition to online learning and parents’ questions. Notes from the meeting are now available in the Minutes of PC Meetings section of our website:
We hope to meet again in early June – do let us know if there are issues you would like us to raise with the school. You can contact the Parent Council by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a message through our Facebook page. We also have the email@example.com e-mail account for general queries.
The Parent Council meeting which was planned for Tuesday 17th March has been postponed. A new date will be advised in due course.
Parents wishing for updates on the Coronavirus situation should go to the school’s website:

If you have a free ten minutes today, you might like to e-mail the Convener and Vice Convener of City of Edinburgh Council’s Education committee, who will be discussing a proposed 1% cut to the Devolved School Management budget tomorrow, Friday 14th February.
In practice, a cut of just 1% will reduce our school’s budget for resources per pupil to around £35 per year -less than some people would pay for a phone contract each month! References have also made re. reducing funding for instrumental music tuition (potentially making it unavailable to pupils whose families cannot pay) and to reducing nursery teachers in early years education.
The parent council feel that it is unreasonable, after years of cuts, to further reduce the school’s resources. If you agree, please let your elected representatives know.
