Covid 19 – Update on activities (16th March 2020)

In response to further guidance received from The City of Edinburgh Council today (16th March) we can now confirm the following:

  • School assemblies will be cancelled
  • Parent consultations will be cancelled
  • Non urgent meetings will be cancelled
  • Activities in school involving play-doh, plasticine, dough, sand and water will be stopped
  • Home baking should not be brought into school to be shared with others

School trips can take place, however we will be checking with venues and providers and carrying out additional risk assessments prior to any outings.  Please be aware that this might result in cancellation of trips at short notice.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in these uncertain times.  We are endeavouring to keep parents up to date with accurate information regarding school and will continue to keep you informed when we receive new information from The City of Edinburgh Council.

Purple Friday – 28th February

LGBT-Youth-ScotlandOn Friday 28th February, Gylemuir Primary will be celebrating Purple Friday. This is a day for us to show our support for LGBT equality and inclusion.

Pupils may wear clothes that are any of the colours of the rainbow (no football strips please). If you wish you may bring a small donation of up to £1.

From Monday 24th February pupils will have the chance to enter two competitions – one is Guess the Rainbow Teddy’s Birthday, the other is guess how many sweeties in the jar! It is 50p per entry and the winners will be announced on Friday 28th February.

All money raised will go to LGBT Youth Scotland.
