Parents are asked to complete survey below ;
Edinburgh Child Protection Committee and NSPCC Scotland are working together to design a city wide campaign on neglect. As part of this we are keen to develop a better understanding of what parents in Edinburgh understand by the term neglect, what they would do if they suspected a child was being neglected and where families access support with parenting. We have created a short survey to do this, which should take between five and ten minutes to complete. By completing this survey, you are helping us ensure that the final campaign will be relevant to all families and contribute towards keeping all children in the city safe. Closing date for responses is 18 March.

The booklet is currently updated twice a year in January and August.
We started our new topic ‘Our Community’ in January and we went on some walks around Craigmillar to explore.
We also had a visit from John, a Craigmillar police officer, to explain what his role in our community is.
We also paid a little visit to Jubilee Park one frosty morning.
As part of our reading collective we got to go to the library to see Emily Dodd, the author of ‘Can’t Dance Cameron’. We had a great afternoon learning all about Scottish wildlife and getting to read Emily’s book.
Young Readers Project
We started our Young Readers project this term. We’ve been paired up with primary 5s who have been reading with us and helping us to choose books for the project.
As always, we’ve been doing lots of learning through play too!
