We’re nearly at the end of the year and the start of your time as Dalry P1 families.
Below is a powerpoint presentation with audio commentary on what to expect in school. It contains all that you could need to know about what to expect next term and things you can do to prepare for P1.
At its March meeting, the Education, Children and Families Committee agreed to change the scheduled Christmas holiday dates from Friday 24 December 2021 – Monday 10 January 2022 to Monday 20 December 2021 – Tuesday 4 January 2022.
The change was based on a similar amendment to the previous year’s holiday dates. The reasons for the change are set out in this committee report:
The report did not include consideration of the in-service day after the holidays. This will be Wednesday 5 January 2022. To ensure that pupils are in school for the required 190 days, the summer term will be amended to finish on Friday 1 July 2022 instead of Thursday 30 June.
The agreed changes are now on the Council website, along with dates for dates for 2022/23, 2023/24 and 2024/25
We have been asked to share the below information from City of Edinburgh Council.
Take a COVID-19 test, even if you don’t have symptoms
Regular testing for people with no COVID-19 symptoms is one of the ways we can all help keep our friends, families and communities safe. High school students are already offered regular lateral flow tests. We are now offering rapid community testing for people with no COVID-19 symptoms in neighbourhoods in Edinburgh where case numbers are or have been high.
Infection rates are higher in the community around your school than in some other areas of the city, so we’re asking people in the community with no COVID-19 symptoms to come for a test at Fountainbridge Library. We’re open from 9am to 6pm from Monday 31 May to Sunday 6 June. Children under 16 will need to be accompanied by a parent or carer.
If you or your child receives a positive test for Covid 19 during the holiday period you should call the City of Edinburgh contact centre on 0131 200 2000 to make them aware. The management of all positive tests will be handled by a central team over the holiday period.
