P1 Parents Information

Hello and welcome to all our new P1 pupils and families!  I have tried to contact as many of you as I can to check if there are any last minute questions or queries before school starts this week. 

There are a few families we don’t have contact details for so if you have not received a phone call or email please contact the school on 0131 453 2464 if there is anything you would like more information about. You should have been given a start day and time for your child but if you are unsure please contact the school.

Just a reminder that all your child will need is a school bag, water bottle and snack.  For starting on Wed/Thurs a school lunch has been ordered for your child but please feel free to send them in with a packed lunch instead if they would prefer.

School jumpers and polo shirts will be on sale in the playground tomorrow from 10 – 11am and 1-2pm if you would like any of these.We look forward to meeting you all this week!

Sistema Scotland – Big Noise

We are happy to let you know that Big Noise Wester Hailes will begin next year!

The charity Sistema Scotland, which runs the Big Noise programmes, has confirmed that Big Noise Wester Hailes will start in spring 2022. Big Noise will work in partnership with the three primary schools in Wester Hailes (including us) and with City of Edinburgh Council. The programme will start with children in Primary 1 and 2 and will grow to include children in nursery and Primary 3 by the end of its first year. 

This news will be made public in the media on Tuesday 29th June, but we wanted to let you know first. Thank you so much to everyone who took part in the digital meetings with Sistema Scotland or completed the feedback form. 

We will have more information about Big Noise Wester Hailes when school starts again in August.

Update Message from Sighthill Primary School Head Teacher – Covid-19 Positive Case

As you may already know, we are aware of additional people in the school who have tested positive for COVID-19. We have been working closely with NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance.  

Persons have now been contacted because they have been in close and sustained contact with the case and the tracking process is now complete. 

These contacts will need to self-isolate and have been asked to book a COVID-19 test. Appropriate guidance and advice have been given. 

If there are any further cases of COVID-19 in the school/setting, we will ensure these individuals, and any of their close contacts, are advised to self-isolate promptly.

If you have not been contacted and your child remains well, you should continue to follow the school’s existing arrangements for your child.

Enhanced cleaning and infection control measures are in place in line with national guidance. The school is safe and remains open. 

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot  or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.  

Please note that a test should only ever be booked if you or your child has these specifics symptoms. 

Remember to stay at home if anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19.
