QMU Summer School

As part of our Parental Engagement, School Improvement and our up and coming Whole School Local Authority Review, we have created a survey monkey to capture parent/carer views of our school at this time.  Its a short 10 question survey and should take no more than 2-3 minutes to complete.

We would be extremely grateful if you could spend some time completing the survey – available on the link below – to tell us your views.
The survey will be open until 6.00pm – Friday 1st June 2018.

Please copy and paste the link in your web browser and follow the instructions.

Many thanks for your continued support

Sponsored Event – Friday 1st June 2018


Organised and supported by ‘Sport for Champions’, who represent Commonwealth Gold Medal winning Judo competitor from Scotland, Louise Renicks.  Louise will be in school to inspire our children and will host a celebration assembly after their circuit session.


The money raised will be split between the school (60%) and Louise (40%), in order to help her attend competitions and achieve more success for Scotland.  All the money raised for Mayfield will be reinvested into purchasing sports equipment for our children.


We are delighted to be supporting an excellent charitable cause and be involved in an exciting event that will hopefully raise much needed funds to update our sports equipment.


Whilst we hope that you are able to ask friends/family/local businesses for some sponsorship money, please do not feel under any pressure to do so. All children will be taking part in the sponsored circuit session on the Friday morning regardless of how much money they raise.


Sponsorship forms, which include further details, have now been handed out to children, if you require extra forms please ask at the school office.


Payment of Sponsor Money can also be made via ParentPay online system.


Many Thanks in advance for your support in this event.


In advance of planned maintenance works at Mayfield Primary School, a routine survey has identified an additional area which will require remedial work.

This area has been cordoned off as purely a precautionary measure until those works are completed.

To reassure all, there are no structural issues that have been identified.

With thanks,

Dr Grace Vickers

Mayfield Primary School Parent Council have been awarded £9,040.00, to reduce the cost for families of their children attending school.

This is a project funded by the Scottish Government and supported by Midlothian Council Communities Team, Mayfield PS Parent Council and Mayfield PS Staff.

The project has worked with Parent Council members, Students and Teachers to examine issues that had an impact on the cost of the school day for families with Primary age children. They came up with ideas for projects aimed at reducing the cost of the school day.

14 Projects have been costed and proposed.

Students, Parents and Teachers will be asked to vote for projects that they wish to be funded,  voting will take place during the week beginning 22 May 2018.

You can vote for the projects you wish to be funded by using stickers (dots) and placing them on the descriptions of the projects.  Please pop into school office anytime this week to cast your votes.  Voting closes Friday 25th May at 12 noon.

Dear All,

We are hopeful that our school will be open in the morning but we would urge everyone to plan their safest route to school.

The roads immediately surrounding the campus have been cleared but only a single track width, so on street parking is not an option. Residents cars are still stuck as some haven’t dug them out yet and may not use them tomorrow, so please walk to school wherever possible, or park further away than usual and walk the rest of the way.

The staff know this as well as there is limited parking for them in the car park.

The breakfast club will be open in the morning so if you set off early and arrive sharp then feel free to join us.

We will all be entering through the front entrance tomorrow so just arrive in time for the bell unless you want your child at the breakfast club.

We’re not sure yet if we will be letting the children out in the snow during break & lunch so please ensure they are wrapped up warm and have appropriate footwear as well as a spare pair of socks with them.

Thank you for your support.

Mrs C Inglis-Akers
