Numeracy and Mathematics Workshops for Parents and Carers

We promote the enjoyment of Numeracy and Mathematics at school and we always encourage learners to use problem solving strategies to tackle calculations.
We are dedicated to raising attainment in Numeracy and Mathematics. One of the ways we have approached this is through Number Talks. We have also adopted Sumdog to promote mental agility. We continue to embed the Stages of Early Arithmetical Learning (SEAL) across Nursery to Primary 4.
You are key to raising attainment in Numeracy and Mathematics too. Confident parents and carers are key to promoting Numeracy and Mathematics in daily life. We invite you to join us in a series of drop in workshops over the next block. All workshops will be informally run by school staff and will directly promote the learning happening in our classrooms so that you can support at home.
Please consider the workshops that you are interested in and contact the school office on 0131 5542308 to book your place. You do not need to attend every workshop!

Cake and Words

Starting on Wednesday 22nd January, from 9-10am we are holding our very first session for parents and carers to come and listen to a story and a poem, to share some cake and to chat about what’s being read.  It will take place in the Learning Hub (school library).  It’s time for you to listen, relax and enjoy…

You may recall that we piloted a similar initiative last year:  on the back of this we managed to secure funding from the Scottish Government’s ‘Schools’ Library Improvement Fund’ to not only run this project, but in response to parent/carer feedback it will be complemented as well by a series of English language classes for those parents and carers who would like to come along.

These English language classes will take place in the Learning Hub (school library) from 10-11am every Wednesday, starting on Wednesday 29th January 2020.


You are welcome to bring along your younger children, if you need to, to either session.


We look forward to seeing you there!
