It’s been lovely seeing the children so focused and excited to be back this week. I will be adding some pictures of this weeks learning to google classroom so the children can share their castle creations.

Please see the important information below from Mrs Hinton regarding the pupil’s learning device scheme. If anyone would like another copy of their child’s google classroom password or any help filling in the form please just let me know.

Many thanks and I hope everyone has a lovely weekend,

Mrs Lynch

Thank you to the families who have already filled out the forms as part of the exciting Midlothian Council scheme to allocate each child  with a learning device. So far, 65% of pupils are enrolled to be allocated devices when the time comes.

Please see below for more information.  There is a form to fill out which takes around 5 minutes.  If possible, please enter the username and password for your child (they know this as they use it to log in to chromebooks at school).  The form can be done without this but it does make the process quicker if you use it.  Every child has been given this!

Parental Acknowledgement Form (must be completed ASAP).

There are answers to frequently asked questions on the Equipped for Learning site, as well as useful contacts should you wish to discuss the scheme further.

We are excited to continue to develop successful learners and positive digital citizens at Loanhead Primary.
