It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas……..

We have nearly reached the end of a very busy and successful term at Liberton Primary School. It is hard to believe that I have been here such a short time.

Over the last few weeks, our children have continued to excel in a number of areas and the focus on academic achievement has been ongoing. There has been an extensive range of extracurricular events which highlights the willingness of children to get involved and staff being prepared to go the extra mile in organising such a wide range of activities. Liberton School continues to flourish because of the commitment of children, staff and parents and we celebrate outstanding achievement as well as the personal enrichment and development of our children.

Sadly, this term we will say farewell to Mrs Govan who has left to have her second baby. We wish her and her family our congratulations and all the best. We hope to see the baby after the Christmas break.

We have a lot of events organised from now until

A huge thanks for all of the books kindly donated for our Treetops library.  We are busy putting books onto the system and have a good number now, so we don’t need any more donations at the moment.

Once all of the books are on the system we will let you know if more are needed!

Thank You to Mrs Smith, Mrs MacKintosh and our fabulous group of parents for all their efforts

Headteacher update: Another amazing week at Liberton Primary I have been getting to know our children in a variety of different contexts; class, breakfast club, lunches and playground which I have thoroughly enjoyed.
This term is traditionally one of the busiest with lots going on. As we countdown for the Winter break, this year there is no exception. I hope you will be able to find time to join us in the many activities which are taking place between now and the end of 2018. Our first event begins next week with Children in Need.

This week, I met with class representatives and visited the nursery to get children’s ideas and suggestions on how we are going to recognise Children in Need this year at Liberton

Headteacher update: It gives me great pleasure to send the first newsletter as acting Headteacher of Liberton Primary School and to welcome everyone to what I am sure will be a very busy and exciting term.

I am joining Liberton as acting Headteacher, having spent the last 6 years as both an Acting Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher in Buckstone Primary School. The skills and experiences I have acquired working in a variety schools over the city has provided my most valuable and rewarding teaching experiences and I hope this will be beneficial for Liberton Primary Community.

I have been tremendously impressed by the whole school, especially the children. From the moment I stepped into Liberton Primary School I was struck by both the excellent relationships between staff and children and the incredibly positive and purposeful learning environment.

Headteacher update:  This week has been a transition week in school following my secondment to the Headteacher post at Oxgangs Primary.  I have spent some time in Oxgangs meeting staff, pupils and parents and Mrs Henry, who will be Acting Headteacher in my absence, has visited Liberton and met our pupils and staff.  I know she greatly enjoyed her time in school and is looking forward to working with our whole school community.

On a personal note I would like to thank everyone for their kind words and good wishes.  I look forward to hearing about all the exciting activities that have happened at Liberton when I return.
