Friday 29th January

Due to the ongoing problems with the council’s access to Office 365, please find below learning grids for today’s work. The issue is being worked on as a matter of urgency by the council IT team. Please be aware that most teachers are also having the same problem so may be unable to access their class Team.


And we begin 2021 with a period of remote learning. Teachers have been working hard to get ready for the weeks ahead. Good luck to everyone!

The first assembly of the new year has been uploaded onto the Friends of Craiglockhart facebook page.

Text to parents

Please note that the text sent to all parents across the city on Sunday 13th December is to inform everyone to the national changes to the self isolation period. This text had been sent city wide. At present we have no positive cases.

Welcome back!

Welcome back everyone! Please remember not to arrive too early for school to avoid congestion on the pavements around the school. P1 and 2 parents, please come into the playground, let your child line up and then leave. P3-7 parents, your child can come straight into the playground and will be supported in their bubbles by staff so you can leave straight away too. Everyone has made a fabulous start and we are so happy to all be back together! Thank you all for your support.
