Parent’s Portal

Some parents are experiencing difficulty with the parent’s portal.  Please find attached, links that may help you to resolve any issues you may have.

Staff are unable to see what parents can see, so providing support is difficult. If  the links below do not help you to resolve your issues, we have been advised that there is a “request support” option on the parent portal site. This will direct your query to the NLC computer centre to help you.

Busy week ahead!

Several things happening in the week ahead!

Don’t forget Sponsored Run for school funds tomorrow Friday 1st November. Pupils to wear suitable sports clothes instead of uniform.  Thanks in advance for all donations.

Reminder that there is a further open event on Thursday 7th November. All classes will be open from 9.15-10.30am for parents to pop in and see what children are learning about the Rights Respecting School. All visitors should sign in the hall before going to class. Tea and coffee will be served in the hall.

Friday 8th November is the opening of the MUGA at St Brendan’s Primary. This is a very busy day! P1-3 from both schools will take part in potted sports from 10am to 12pm before the official ribbon cutting at 12.15pm.  P4-7 from both schools will have their sports activities in the afternoon.  Families are welcome to come along.  Where possible, children should wear a school polo shirt and sweat shirt with track suit trousers and trainers. All children from both schools will be staggered lunches at Muirhouse PS. We look forward to working in such close partnership with our neighbours.
