Welcome to Stockbridge Primary

Our whole school community will strive to enable everyone to be successful , confident, effective and responsible learners. We will work together to build a happy, healthy and inclusive school community.


Our curriculum is underpinned by our values:


Friends of Stockbridge Primary Charity Vacancy

Friends of Stockbridge School (SC042765) is a small local charity with close links to Stockbridge Primary School and seeks to support learning and development opportunities for the school and its pupils through charitable fundraising and grant funding. The charity is currently seeking a new volunteer to replace an existing trustee who is standing down in the near future. The charity has 4 trustees in total.

We would welcome any volunteers from the Stockbridge area who are independent of the school (e.g. no current direct connection to the school) who would be interested in the role to contact the charity on info@friendsofstockbridgeschool.org.uk. The role would require attending approximately 4 trustee meetings each year and some limited other work between meetings to support the charity aims.

Parent/Carers survey for Early learning and Childcare

Parent/Carers survey for Early learning and Childcare:

In response to feedback the council has adapted the citywide parent/carer survey specifically for Early Learning and Childcare settings.

The link to the Early Years new survey is:


The closing date for this survey is 30th March 2018.

We would urge both morning and afternoon nursery parents and carers to respond to the survey as the feedback will be used to help us plan our nursery improvement plan for next year.


P4 Breakfast Stall

P4 are holding a breakfast stall in aid of Mpeni School, in Malawi.

This Monday to Friday (12-16 March 2018) from 8.30-8.50am in the P4 classroom.

Please bring £1 and choose either hot porridge and topping OR bread and butter and a snack sized piece of fruit (bring your own bowl and spoon and we’ll wash up!).

Younger children can bring their parents.

They will be selling surplus books from the P2/3 book fair and nasturtium seedlings from the Global Giants Group.



Snow school spirit


Due to an amazing turnout from our school community including parents, pupils, staff and local community we will be able to open tomorrow. Everyone helped clear our school grounds by shoveling snow to ensure everyone has safe access to the building. Thank you to everyone that turned out. Fantastic community spirit!



Help please!

Dear Parent/Carer

We need your help!

Thank you for all your patience during our closure. I am very keen for us to open on Monday but the playground still has a significant amount of snow blocking safe access to each of the buildings.

If any parents are free on Sunday and willing to help dig paths I will be opening up the school at 11am and providing warm drinks (if I can get my hands on milk!) and biscuits. If you are available and have no injuries please meet at the school entrance wearing suitable clothing and footwear. If you have a shovel please bring it along.

If we all work together we can get the school open!

Yours sincerely,

Faye Calder -Kelly

New Build Update

I am very pleased to inform you that we have now been granted planning permission for our new classrooms.  As a result the ground work will commence on MONDAY the 5th March.   Barriers will be installed during the morning when children are in classes.  As you will understand the build will result in access to the school and playground being limited to ensure all children are kept safe for the duration of the build.  Please read the following information carefully to ensure that you are aware of any changes to school procedures.
·         Primary 1 and 2 will continue to line up and be dismissed from the small playground.
·         Primary 2/3, 3, 4, 4/5,5,6 and 7 will all line up in the biggies playground at the start of the day.
·         Primary 3 and Primary 4 will be dismissed from the small playground at the end of the school day.
·         Primary 2/3, 4/5, and 5 will be dismissed from the blue door in the biggies playground.
·         Primary 6 and Primary 7 will be dismissed from the main door but will be expected to meet any parent/carers who pick up in the biggies playground.
·         The biggies playground will be much busier before and after school. Please try and arrive at drop off no earlier than 8.45am. The school playground will be closed at 3.45pm Monday – Thursday and from 12.45pm on a Friday.
·         The barrier will be very close to the front entrance.   Please ensure that you communicate by email where possible with the school office to reduce foot fall.
·         The children will have amended break and lunchtimes to reduce the number of children in the playground at any one time.   Please be assured that all children will continue to get the same amount of playtime as they do on our current timetable.
·         Access to breakfast club, After School Care and clubs will remain the same.
·         The nursery class access will not be affected by the build.
·         The contractor will be leading a site safety assembly with the children next week.
·         The contractor is aware of break and lunchtimes and will not be accepting deliveries at these times.
We have a Parent Council Meeting at 6pm on Wednesday the 7th March in the Rainbow Room.  All parents are welcome to attend and I am happy to answer any questions you have about how the build will impact on the school.
I would also like to have a record of what our playground looked like prior to the build to look back on.  If any parent is a keen photographer and is available to come in to take some photos this Thursday lunchtime please contact the school office.
Ms Calder Kelly, Headteacher

Online Safety Workshop

We’re here to help you keep your child safe online

O2 and the NSPCC have joined forces on a mission to help all children and their families in the UK stay safe online. Together, they’re offering useful tools, support and guidance to help parents and carers have frequent conversations with their children about their online lives.

Our free online safety workshop for parents and carers

We would like to invite all parents, carers or family members to a free online safety workshop at Broughton High School, 29 East Fettes Avenue, Edinburgh, EH4 1EG on Friday the 16th of March from 1.30-2.30pm.  The content covered in the workshops is aimed at adults. Parents with children are advised to arrange childcare if possible.

The hour-long workshop will help parents, carers and other adults understand their child’s online world, build confidence to have those important conversations that can help keep children safe online and help you know where to go for help and advice.

 “After coming to this workshop today, I realise the importance of having conversations with my child rather than avoid the subject. I didn’t know there were things I could do to make it better, I’m so glad I came to this workshop. I will definitely be calling the helpline or going into store to get some help, thank you.” – Parent who attended the workshop

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity. RSVP by replying to admin@stockbridge.edin.sch.uk

Until then, if you need any support or guidance about keeping children safe online, here are a few things you could do:

·         Visit our NSPCC and O2 NSPCC website pages,

·         Call our free O2 NSPCC Online Safety Helpline on 0808 800 5002

·         Download our Net Aware app on the App Store or Google Play

·         Pop into your local O2 store for online safety help from a Guru – you don’t even have to be an O2 customer!

·         Sign up to our icebreaker email series.

School Survey

Dear Parent / Carer

Welcome back to a new school term! Please see message below regarding a council survey for parents from Andy Gray (Head of Schools).   I would urge as many parents as possible to complete the council survey as we will use this information to inform our school improvement plan for next year.  The deadline for completion is Friday the 2nd March 2018.

Best wishes,

Faye Calder-Kelly


Dear Parent/Carer

This survey has been devised to help us provide your child with a high quality education. Your views will help us find out what we are doing well and where we could improve.

Thousands of parents and carers have taken part in previous surveys and I would like to encourage even more of you to do so this year. The views of parents and carers really help us to improve services at the school level and across the city.

If possible, please complete the survey online but copying and pasting the following link into your browser:

or request a paper copy and return it to your child’s school.

We have not asked you to provide your name. This is so that you can express your views freely knowing they will be anonymous. A summary of the results will be circulated to all schools.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely,

Andy Gray

Head of Schools
