Firework Advice

In the run up to bonfire season, Police Scotland, City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish Fire & Rescue are keen to keep everyone safe during the festivities. In previous years firework-related anti-social behaviour (ASB) and disorder has been seen in this area, and we are asking for your help to prevent this occurring again. They are therefore offering the following advice.

See, Hear, Respond

Are you worried about a child or young person affected by the covid crisis?

The pandemic means vulnerable children and young people (and their families) can experience negative impacts on their health and wellbeing or be at risk of harm and could benefit from support (before they reach a crisis). Barnardo’s Scotland have secured National Emergencies Trust funding to respond to these situations with their new See, Hear, Respond ServiceSee, Hear, Respond Service. They will respond quickly to every enquiry or referral so that no child gets missed and will help in a number of ways:

  • An online hub of support and information
  • A telephone helpline and web-based “front door” to access help
  • Practical support, advice and guidance
  • Signposting to local agencies and services
  • Virtual interventions with young people or families (telephone or video therapeutic response which may include counselling, other therapies or family work)

Message from John Wilson, Headteacher and NHS Lothian

We are aware of a person in the school who has tested positive for COVID-19.  We are working closely with NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance.

A number of people are currently being contacted because they may have been in close and sustained contact with the case and will need to self isolate.   They will be given appropriate guidance and advice.

An update will be sent to you as soon as the tracking and tracing process is complete.   If you are not contacted, your child should attend school as normal.

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.

Remember to stay at home if anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19.
