Leith Primary School 2013/14

A Foreword from the Director of Children and Families
Session 2013-14
Dear Parents
This brochure contains a range of information about your child’s school which will be of interest to you and your child. It offers an insight into the life and ethos of the school and also offers advice and assistance which you may find helpful in supporting and getting involved in your child’s education.
We are committed to working closely with parents as equal partners in your child's education, in the life of your child's school and in city -wide developments in education.
Parental involvement in the decision making process and in performance monitoring are now, more than ever, an integral part of school life. We look forward to developing that partnership with your support.

I am pleased to introduce this brochure for session 2013/14 and hope that it will provide you with all the relevant information you may need concerning your child’s school. If you have any queries regarding the contents of the brochure please contact the Head Teacher of your child’s school in the first instance who will be happy to offer any clarification you may need.

Children and Families Vision
Our vision is for all children and young people in Edinburgh to enjoy their childhood and fulfill their potential.

We believe that children and young people do best when:
  • they are able to live safely and happily within their own families with the right kind of support as needed

  • they attend first class, inclusive schools and early years settings which meet their needs

We will do all we can to strengthen support for families, schools and communities to meet their children's needs.

Our mission is to place children, young people and families at the heart of our service and provide support when it is needed throughout childhood and the transition to adulthood.
