Head Teacher Post

It has been a really positive week of learning in school. Classes continue to make the most of the outdoor space on our doorstep and children have enjoyed playing with the Autumn leaves.

Parent-Teacher Meetings

Thank you to all of you who attended your child’s virtual Parent-Teacher consultation appointment this week. It was great to see a very good level of attendance online. We continue to look forward to the time when we can welcome parents back in to school.


We shared with you a few weeks ago that we were looking into a system that was a better fit for pupils sharing their home learning and for parents communicating with teachers. Seesaw is a system that many schools use successfully to do these tasks. We continue to develop our ambition to train all pupils in P3-P7 to use Microsoft Teams however these accounts are for the exclusive use of the pupils. With Seesaw, parents can communicate with their child’s class teacher in the same way that they have done using OLJ. The system represents much better value for the school meaning that we can direct the money saved to purchasing new learning resources for pupils. More information on Seesaw will be sent to you in the next few weeks. Until then, please use the email address your child’s class teacher has provided you in the most recent class newsletter or the school admin email address.

Calling Any Experienced Football Coaches!

Are you an experienced football coach who would be willing to start a school football team? Our older children would love to be part of a competing school football team but do not yet have a coach. If this is something you have experience of running or you know someone who does, please let us know.

Well Done to All These Hardworking Leithers This Week!

Farewell to Robert!

Primary 4 pupils said farewell to Robert Stewart, our long-serving Crossing Patrol Guide last Friday. The school Parent Council gave Robert a trophy for all his hard work over the years and the girls presented Robert with a card signed by all the children at Leith Primary. We all wish Robert a very long and restful retirement and thank him for his cheerful service.
