Coronavirus update 14/12/20

Message from Rhoda MacDougall headteacher and NHS Lothian

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

A number of people 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 appropriate guidance and advice has been given.

 If you have not been contacted directly to tell you your child is a close contact, then your child should attend school as normal.

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  or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.

Letter to All Parents for Single Confirmed Case of COVID Updated

The Big Move

This is our last day at Watertoun Road and whilst we are really looking forward to new beginnings in our lovely new school, we will be leaving our dearly loved school behind. I have only been at St Crispin’s for just over two years now but, so many of our families and staff have been here for so much longer and will be sad to be leaving our old school.

We have been busy sorting, packing and planning ahead for our new classrooms and learning spaces at our new location in Burdiehouse. When our children return after the February break they will be able to explore our new classrooms, outside play areas and so much more. We have had very successful visits to the new school over the last two weeks, so we are confident that our children and young people will enjoy their new learning space.

Please have a lovely, restful mid-term break and we will welcome our children and young people into our new school on Wednesday 23rd February.

Best wishes,
Rhoda MacDougall
St Crispin’s School
