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.

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.
