Building Resilience - Back to School Campaign

With the Scottish Government announcement about children returning to school we know many families will have lots of questions and mixed feelings over the next couple of weeks. The Health and Wellbeing, Parent and Carers Support and Psychological Services teams at City of Edinburgh Council have been busy working with the Parent and Carer Support Collaborative to produce training and resources to support the wellbeing of parents, carers, children, young people.   They have produced a series of Back to School Tips, which you can see in the Useful Information Section.

Letter from the Headteacher

Dear parents and carers

You are aware of the many twists and turns affecting schools’ and parental plans for the August 2020 return.

We have been asked to assume a 100% return to school. We await further information from the Scottish Government and will share this with you when it becomes available, over the summer holidays.

My position is that I would like to see all of our young people back in school in August, provided that I am assured that all of the required infection control measures are in place to protect children and staff. Schools also require assurance that our staffing levels are sufficient for the full return as we are obliged to support all students, taking account of learning, physical and emotional needs. These needs will all be at a higher level than in normal years.

Although I attach summary plans for the 33% model as guides, my hope is that these will be required either briefly or as the ‘contingency’ that the Scottish Government requires. While they are based on a one-third occupancy, the actual proportion of students in the building ranges between 33% and 47%, depending on size and combination of cohorts.

The 30th July has been signalled as the watershed for the final announcement from the Cabinet Secretary regarding the start of the new session. Our intention is to respond to that announcement with the required urgency and share specific plans for Broughton HS as soon as possible after that date.

With best wishes to you and your families

John J Wilson

Make the Call Campaign

Scotland’s firefighters are calling on communities to help stop preventable deaths in house fires – by making a five-minute phone call.

Make the Call is a hard-hitting appeal to carers, family, friends and of those who are at risk of serious injury or even death because of an accidental fire in their home.

The latest statistics show that more than 20 people who are over the age of 50, smoke and either have mobility issues, live alone, or use medical oxygen have already been injured, some seriously, by such fires between January 1 and April 30 this year.   Tragically, 12 of those people sadly passed away.

SFRS is now appealing to communities across Scotland to help save a life and consider home fire safety when checking in on vulnerable neighbours, patients, friends and family members during lockdown and to put them in touch with SFRS wherever possible using the free Home Fire Safety Visit phoneline.

As part of their commitment to building a safer Scotland they offer everyone in Scotland a free home fire safety visit. They will help you sort out a fire escape plan and provide information about smoke, heat and carbon monoxide alarms.

Get in touch with them, it's so easy to arrange:

§  call 0800 0731 999

§  text "FIRE" to 80800 from your mobile phone

§  complete their online formonline form

If you have decided that you want the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to undertake a Home Fire Safety Visit, it is important that you understand how your personal information will be collected and used, and what rights you have when it comes to your information. 

SFRS have a full HFSV Privacy NoticeHFSV Privacy Notice available on their website which explains all of this and if you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to contact them at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
