Your new teacher
Miss Copeland is the Primary 1 teacher. You can watch her reading a story in the video below.
The Bookworm by Debi Gliori is the story all nursery settings in Edinburgh City Council used to support children with their transition. We will continue discuss this book during the first weeks of P1. We hope this will help them to feel comfortable in their new setting.

School Education in Scotland
Best Start Grant School Age Payment applications are now open for children who were born between 1 March 2017 and 28 February 2018. The one-off payment of £267.65 per child helps families with the costs associated with a child starting at Primary School. People who get tax credits or certain benefits are encouraged to apply before the window closes on 28 February 2023. Eligibility is based on age and relates to when a child is first old enough to start school. Parents or carers who have deferred their child’s entry to school from August 2022 to August 2023, or those home schooling, must still apply before the closing date or they will lose out on their payment. For more information about how to apply see Best Start Grant and Best Start Foods
