How are You doing?

Children’s Parliament is engaging children in conversations about their experience of Coronavirus and the lockdown and have now launched the May edition of their national wellbeing survey, ‘How are you doing’? – 4,000 children took part in April’s survey and they hope to exceed that in May. 

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


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.

Please note this was sourced externally as shared on various social media platforms and is not the work of MPS.

As we move into the second week of schools being closed, teachers will be sharing distant learning tasks for your children to undertake through Seesaw. Seesaw allows children to share their learning with their teacher and receive feedback and guidance regarding next steps.

This is a new way of working for all of us and we ask families to be mindful that staff may have their own personal circumstances to accommodate during this uncertain time, become ill, or are even working on the frontline in the hubs, teaching children whose parents are category 1 service providers.

Please be reassured that where possible, staff will be online at various times throughout the week (Monday to Friday) to answer any home learning questions and provide learners with feedback regarding their work.


Please be aware that there will be no online learning set for the Easter holidays and teachers will not be communicating online during the Easter holidays either.

We will resume online learning on 20th April 2020.

Thanks so much for your support.

As a further update to Distance Learning, a new Parent/Carer Portal has now been published.

This portal also contains a form to register to request loan of a Midlothian-owned device for the period of closure, if required for distance learning.
