VIRTUAL TOUR OF A P1 CLASSROOM FOR NEW PUPILS
We are looking forward to welcoming our newest Primary 1 pupils to Stenhouse Primary School in August. Unfortunately, the current COVID-19 restrictions prevent us from providing a tour of the classrooms before the summer. As an alternative, one of our current P1 classes has created an interactive virtual tour. It is an opportunity for you and your child to explore a P1 classroom and see some other areas of the school too.
You can view the tour online on a computer, tablet, or smartphone by clicking on the link or image below:
We hope you enjoy exploring!
How to Stay Calm….

During the school holidays, if your child has had a positive test result for Covid-19 please call 0131 200 2000 to let us know.

Edinburgh Child Protection
Edinburgh Child Protection Committee and NSPCC Scotland are working together to design a city wide campaign on neglect. As part of this we are keen to develop a better understanding of what parents in Edinburgh understand by the term neglect, what they would do if they suspected a child was being neglected and where families access support with parenting. We have created a short survey to do this, which should take between five and ten minutes to complete. By completing this survey, you are helping us ensure that the final campaign will be relevant to all families and contribute towards keeping all children in the city safe. Closing date for responses is 18 March.
