A message to P7 Pupils from Miss Hume – Newbattle High School

“Hi Mayfield pupils!

I have set up a Google classroom for us so that I can share information and activities with you about the High School.  The class will be managed by High School staff but your Primary teachers are on there too.  

I have started off with an introduction to the classroom and a quiz about Newbattle.

Below is a link that will help you to log in to Glow (you need your Glow login details) and join a Google classroom if you don’t know how…….These are key skills for High School!


I look forward to seeing you join up!

Miss Hume”

How are You doing?

Please encourage your chid to complete this survey, which can be found by clicking link below;

Children’s Parliament – ‘How are You Doing’?

A short report on early findings from their April ‘How are you doing’? survey, along with the newly launched, ‘Corona Times Journal‘, can also be found via above link. – The ‘Corona Times Journal‘ will be published fortnightly, with Members of the Children’s Parliament (MCPs), reporting on life at the moment.

Reporting to Parents

Information from Midlothian Council;

Reporting to Parents


Scottish Government guidance states that ‘ local authorities and schools will be planning how they communicate with parents and families about their child’s progress during Term 4 and many early learning practitioners will wish to share information on children’s development. This will require a different format to those that may have been taken before’.


If you have not already received a progress report for your child this session, you should expect, by the end of this term, to receive a revised, simplified version of the school’s usual format.


The report will focus on:

·         The child’s strengths and achievements

·         Their progress to date

·         Their next steps in literacy and numeracy

If you have any questions about your child’s progress, please contact the school direct.
