If you have a mobile number we can send you information instantly, reply to absence messages and keep you in the loop about what is happening in and around the school. Edinburgh Council’s website has information on all city schools that includes holiday dates and severe weather closures. Find out more details at Keep in touch Keep up to date www.edinburgh.gov.uk/ Our school website is the ideal way to keep abreast of what your child has been learning. Full of pictures and video, its aim is to give you a window into your child’s education. Alongside this, you’ll find all related information about Lorne – staff, Parent Council, Eco Committee, Pupil Council and much, much more.

  6. Our Learning Journals Please make a comment – the children and staff love to read these We will keep you up to date with the progress your child is making through our Learning Journals. We need your email address, so that you can receive your notification when an observation has been uploaded. That way you will receive regular comments, photos and even the odd video about what your child has been learning. These regular updates form your child’s school report over the year.

  7. Children are encouraged to drink water throughout the day. Milk 16p – Pay per session Stop Head Lice. Once a week take a peek. Please inform us of any outbreaks.

Lorne Primary School Agreement - Partnership We will ask you to read and sign this with your child as part of our contract with your family to work together and help your child reach their full potential. Within this contract we are also setting our expectations on acceptable behaviour which includes the Council’s Anti-Bullying and Prejudice Policy.

We display pupils work throughout the school and on the school website. This includes pupil photographs. We will not use photographs of your child if this is your wish. Parents/Guardians visiting the school at any time are reminded that no photographs or filming of staff or pupils is allowed. Pupils misusing a mobile phone or computer, filming or recording staff within the school, school grounds or on a school outing will be treated seriously and Police could be involved.
