As part of Midlothian Council’s Equipped for Learning programme, a digital device for learning is being provided to every child of school age. This is to ensure that all young people have access to the technology they need for learning, both at school and at home.
For further information on the programme, and to fill out the parental agreement form please see the links below. The devices will not be allocated for full use until the agreements are filled out. This is an online form.
Equipped for Learning Information
Parental Acknowledgement Form (must be completed ASAP).
This year Midlothian Council have transferred pupil and staff accounts to Google. This means that the old Google Classroom, accessed through Glow in P2, is no longer in use.
Today your child came home with instructions to access their new classroom as well as a new username and password.
Google classroom can be accessed via gmail.
- Visit https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin
- Sign in to gmail using the above email address and password
- In the top right corner click on the symbol showing nine dots
- Select ‘classroom’
You can also log in with the midlothian.education username and password on a chrome browser.
Next year, when every child will have a device to learn on in school, children will log in every day with these usernames and passwords and home learning will be here too (also remote learning if needed).
Please log on and post something so we know that you can get access. If you need any support feel free to email Miss Ramsay or Mrs Hinton.
For a copy of the letter CLICK HERE *Please note that you will need to email Mrs Hinton or Miss Ramsay if you require username and Password.
The final few days of term are upon us!
PE – Monday and Wednesday.
The last three days will consist of finishing previous work/projects; a final Zoom assembly on Wednesday; online pantos; watching the class song recordings; Christmas card making & crafts. We will prepare and organise for next term. We will tidy our trays out and send work home, if appropriate.
For obvious reasons, we are being extra vigilant with hand sanitising and room ventilation. The latter often means that windows and doors are open so children may wear extra layers or coats in class if they wish.
***School finishes on Wednesday 22nd December at 3:15 pm. Pupils resume Tuesday 11th January 2022.***
I hope everyone has a safe, happy and healthy time and see you all in 2022!
