P7s at Benmore


Day Three at Benmore included more of the same activities with groups forest walking, kayaking, gorge walking, climbing/abseiling and two very muddy groups who went out biking. The weather was not quite as kind to us but everyone still had a great time. Mr Law and Mrs Scott arrived at lunchtime to join the fun and Mr Law called this morning to say everyone had had a good night and they were looking forward to their activities today and getting ready for the disco tonight! More photos to come!

Achieving Green Flag Status!


We have just heard from Keep Scotland Beautiful that we have achieved Green Flag status! We are all delighted as it has been a long time coming and is down to the hard work and commitment of the Eco Committee along with the whole school community to make lasting improvements in the areas of Litter, Bio-diversity and Waste Management. Eco Schools has changed recently and will now be linked to the Global Goals. The Green Flag status has to be reaccredited every two years so the work does not stop here and we look forward to making Craiglockhart, the local community and the planet a greener, cleaner, more equitable place!

Edinburgh 20mph Speed Limits-Go live!


Message on behalf of the council.

From Sunday 31 July, the legal speed limit in streets across much of Edinburgh’s city centre and rural west area went down to 20mph, the first phase in a planned rollout of lower speeds across the Capital.

The new speed limits are designed to increase safety for all road users in Edinburgh as well as creating a calmer, more people-friendly environment in shopping and residential streets.  A network of key arterial roads across the city will be retained at 30mph and 40mph, resulting in a modest impact on journey times overall.

Our phased 20mph rollout between now and early 2018 brings to fruition many years of planning and public consultation and the network has been designed in line with robust criteria in partnership with key stakeholders such as Police Scotland and Lothian Buses.

Police Scotland will enforce the new limit, focusing on areas where particularly high levels of contraventions are recorded. Anyone caught breaching the limit risks a £100 fixed penalty and three penalty points on their licence.

We have long recognised that a majority of city residents want to see speed limits reduced in the city centre, around residential areas and in busy shopping streets.

Phase 1 ‘go live’ marks the start of sharing these benefits right across the Capital.  Further information and a detailed map of the 20mph network is available at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/20mph or visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/edin20mph.

Big Bike Breakfast

Thank you to all of our ‘Mad Scientists’who turned up for breakfast this morning to mark the end of the Big Pedal and dressed up themselves and their bikes in spectacular fashion!

The Junior Road Safety Officers did a wonderful job serving breakfast to 198 children and their families and cleaning up afterwards and chose some of the amazing bikes to take up to assembly and share with the school. We even had one with a working electrical circuit that made a buzzing noise! Incredible!


We are Global Citizens

Many thanks to everyone who came along to our Fairtrade morning to learn all about the Global Goals. Our Global Citizenship group were incredible at their different stalls with such wonderful knowledge to share about the goals. Parents were greeted by dancers, delicious Fairtrade baking was on offer thanks to Miss Frater and it was all brought together by the brilliant Miss Ramsay. Well done to all involved!

Sport Relief

A huge thank youto everyone who helped make Sport Relief 2015 so special at Craiglockhart. We had a wonderful assembly where all classes chose to represent sport in a different way from fencing and yoga demonstrations to beautiful ballet dancing. A special thanks to Finlay and his Dad who organised a Sport Relief fun run at Meggetland which was very well attended and wonderful fun!
