Wet Weather Arrangements

The pupils will be able to enter the school from 8.40am on a wet morning.  Pupil Support Assistants will supervise the pupils as they hang up their jackets and school bags and change into their indoor shoes.

The Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils will gather in the infant hall from 8.40am onwards, where they will line up in class order and wait for their teacher to collect them.

Primary 3a pupils will enter the school from the P3 and P4 doors on a wet morning.

Thank you to our Gilmerton families for showing real resilience this morning as we had our first wet Monday morning of the session.  All pupils entered their classrooms smiling and ready for the learning day ahead.

Meet the Teacher

We would like to invite our parents and carers to ‘Meet the Teacher’ from 2.00pm onwards on Thursday 13th September.  This is an opportunity for your child to show you their classroom and for the teacher to share what the class will be learning this year and what you can do to support learning at home.  Please note that this is not a consultation time and the teachers will not be able to discuss individual pupils.

Please enter by the main school gates on Moredun Dykes Road.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.

Superheroes Day – Thursday 26th April


Gilmerton Primary School will be joining other schools, businesses and organisations across Edinburgh to celebrate the city’s starring role in the Marvel adventure movie, “Avengers: Infinity War”.

On Thursday 26th April, pupils and staff will be able to channel their inner superhero and will have the option to come to school dressed as their favourite superhero character.  We are mindful of our 1 in 5 initiative, and we do not wish to cause families expense in dressing up, but would encourage children to wear costumes they may already have or to create a homemade costume (eg a mask or a badge or a cape).  Staff will be creating learning opportunities around the Superhero theme and pupils will be challenged to think of learning powers and how these can be used to improve learning.
