Head Teacher Post

Welcome back to our Autumn Term! I hope everyone had a restful October week and remembered to put their clocks back on Sunday morning.

As the weather gets colder, I would ask that all pupils are sent to school in a warm, waterproof jacket or coat and suitable footwear. If anyone would like support with purchasing these items please speak to Danni or Liz, our Family Support Workers who will be very pleased to help.

COVID mitigations remain the same in school and we have been advised that parents should only be in the school building by prior arrangement. We kindly request that parents try to remain out of the school playground at drop off and pick up times and that nursery parents use the black gate

Teachers are looking forward to meeting with parents and carers virtually again on Thursday and Friday this week. If you have not yet booked your slot with your child’s class teacher, please do so on https://parents-booking.co.uk/leithprimary
