Charities at Buckstone PS

This year at Buckstone Primary School, each year group will be supporting and raising awareness of a chosen charity. We will be highlighting the meaning of a charity as ‘helping others in need’. This may be an animal charity, environmental charity or a health charity. Once we have decided our charities we will update our website to highlight which charity your child will be advocating.

We look forward to supporting and raising awareness of different charities throughout the school and hope that you will enjoy hearing all about it from your child.

Message from Mrs Imrie, Head Teacher and NHS Lothian

As you may already know, we are aware of a person in the school who has tested positive for COVID-19. We have been working closelywith NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance.  

Persons have now been contacted because they have been in close and sustained contact with the case and the tracking process is now complete. 

These contacts will need to self-isolate and have been asked to book a COVID-19 test. Appropriate guidance and advice have been given. 

If there are any further cases of COVID-19 in the school, we will ensure these individuals, and any of their close contacts, are advised to self-isolate promptly.

If you have not been contacted and your child remains well, you should continue to follow the school’s existing arrangements for your child.

Enhanced cleaning and infection control measures are in place in line with national guidance. The school is safe and remains open. 

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot  or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.  

Please note that a test should only ever be booked if you or your child has these specifics symptoms. 

Remember to stay at home if anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19.
