Welcome

Welcome to the website for Glencorse Primary School in Milton Bridge, Penicuik. We are a unique, small school with a role of fifteen pupils in a P2-7 class. Our focus is on providing our pupils with skills for life and work and ensuring they learn in a supportive and encouraging environment.

‘A small school building big dreams’

 

End of Term Closure

A reminder that school will close on Friday 28th June at 12.25pm for all.  We wish you all a very happy, relaxed and enjoyable summer break!

 

Red Nose Day

Thank you to everyone who contributed to Red Nose Day.  We have today sent off £40.00 which was collected through selling baking and wearing something red.

 

ECO Flag

Fantastic news.  We have just received our 3rd Green Flag.  Well done to Mrs Beveridge and all the children for their hard work.  Look out for our lovely new flag on our flagpole.

Parents Evening

Thanks to all the parents and grandparents who attended our Oscar Evening.  We hope you enjoyed the animation presentation on World War II and looking at all the hard work the children put in to the project.

 ParentPay – Our New Online School Payment Service

ParentPay is an online payment system for schools. It allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, milk, trips and much more.

I’m delighted to inform you that our school will go-live with ParentPay on 19th March 2018.

The system is easy-to-use and offers parents and carers the freedom to make online payments by credit or debit card, whenever and wherever they like, 24/7.

What parents and carers can do now

  • If you haven’t already, please create an account with our Midlothian Council website where you can also find out more about ParentPay

Parents and carers will be sent individual letters detailing the account activation procedure nearer the time and user guides will be available online.

 

We will of course continue to accept cash and cheque payments as necessary but we do hope that parents will use the new online facility. Less time spent in school on cash handling means more time is available to support the smooth running of the school.
