CORSTORPHINE PRIMARY SCHOOL

I would like to take this opportunity to let you know how much I have enjoyed being the Acting Head Teacher at Corstorphine over the last year. There have been many opportunities and challenges to keep me on my toes! Although I am excited about my new role as Head Teacher at Kirkliston Primary School, it is with a heavy heart that I will leave Corstorphine in a few months’ time.

Parent Council Surveys

A Healthy School Meal enables your children to play and learn to the best of their abilities.

In 2014 the Scottish Government set the current guidelines for School Meals, Better Eating, Better Learning – A New Context for School Food.

At the Parent Council we want to hear your (Parent’s and Carers) views of Corstorphine Primary School Meals, good and bad. We have prepared a Survey Monkey, attached which should take up ten minutes of your time. We encourage you to fill it in as thoroughly as possible so we can collate the parents/carers view of the current school meals on offer.

The more information we have the more this supports us in implementing change.

We also want to hear what the children’s view of School Meals and School Packed lunches is at Corstorphine primary, good and bad. Do you love school dinners or do you hate them? Why is that?

We want you to look forward to eating the school dinners and for them to be a positive part of your day.

We have prepared a Survey Monkey, attached which should take up ten minutes of your time. Each child should each complete their own survey. We encourage you to fill it in as much information as possible, you may need your parents or carers to help you do this but it is important we have your opinions.

The more information we have from you the more we can make change.
Thanks for your time,
The Parent Council

School Choir

Further to recent enquiries, we are sorry to inform you that we cannot staff the school choir this session. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs McCullough for all her hard work with the choir over the last 5 Years. She has enabled them to take part in lots of fabulous events and develop their performance skills. We have so many talented singers at Corstorphine Primary School and so we are hoping that there is someone out there who would like to take over from Mrs McCullough. If anyone is interested in running the choir, the school would be delighted to hear from you so please contact the school office to find out more.

Children in Need

Following a discussion with the PTA we have decided to support Children in Need as one of our main charities this year. Children in Need falls on Friday 17th September. We will have a whole school dress down/ PJ day and there is an optional theme of spots for anyone who wishes. We will dedicate the creative hub time on 10th November to preparing something to wear as part of the theme.
