Healthy Tuck Shop (P6 and P7) Pilot

The P7 Health Team are keen to launch a tuck shop at Roslin Primary. They have worked closely with Nicola Kennan-McCourt, the Dining Supervisor.  Nicola has liaised with Midlothian Council Catering Services to ensure we are meeting HWB Guidelines.  The Health Team are excited about launching this new initiative and have agreed it with our Parent Council.

The Healthy Tuck Shop will be available for all P6 and P7 pupils from Monday 19 March to Thursday 29 March. It will open just before 10.30am to allow the children to purchase items prior to break time. Children will be offered a selection of fruit and healthy snacks ranging from 15p to 50p (please ensure your child has loose coins are change will be limited).

Dependent on the success of the pilot, a decision will be made to roll out the Healthy Tuck Shop to the remainder of the school after the Easter Holidays.

Yours sincerely

The Health Team

Roslin Church Easter Service Thursday 29th March 9:15am

On Thursday 29th March, the whole school will attend a church service in Roslin Parish Church at 9.15am.  As in previous years, we need parent helpers to walk with the children to and from the church.  If you, or a relative, are able to help, please complete the slip below and return it to your child’s teacher by Wednesday 14th March.

 Parents/carers are welcome to attend the service too, which should last approximately one hour. Please make your way to the gallery when you arrive as the classes take up all available space in the main part of the church.

All nursery pupils are invited to church too. If your child normally attends the afternoon session you, or a friend/relative, are welcome to bring your child along and stay with him/her in the gallery during the service.

After School Judo Club

We are delighted to be able to offer Judo as an after school club in conjunction with Chris Syrett who is the head coach of Shishi Kai Judo, a large family run judo club based in Edinburgh. Chris has recently moved to Roslin and is keen to bring his Judo Club into Midlothian with Roslin Primary School his first priority. Chris has been running Judo clubs in Edinburgh for many years with great success and is now hoping to bring the same fun and enjoyment to the pupils of Roslin Primary.

Pupils had the opportunity to take part in a Judo taster session today, Wednesday 7th March, with the Judo club then beginning after the Easter holiday in April.

Judo sessions will take place on a Wednesday after school. If interest is high Chris plans to run a class for Primary 2 to Primary 4 pupils between 3.15pm and 4.00pm and then a class for Primary 5 to Primary 7 pupils from 4.15pm and 5.00pm. Pupils will receive further information and booking forms after their taster session on Wednesday.

Sessions will cost £4 per week and unlike Active Schools sports clubs Judo sessions will run throughout the whole school year.

ParentPay – Our New On-Line School Payment Service

ParentPay is an online payment system for schools. It allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, milk, trips and much more.


I’m delighted to inform you that our school will go-live with ParentPay on 19th March 2018.  


The system is easy-to-use and offers parents and carers the freedom to make online payments by credit or debit card, whenever and wherever they like, 24/7.

What parents and carers can do now

  • If you haven’t already, please create an account with our Midlothian Council website where you can also find out more about ParentPay

Parents and carers will be sent individual letters detailing the account activation procedure nearer the time and user guides will be available online.


We will of course continue to accept cash and cheque payments as necessary but we do hope that parents will use the new online facility. Less time spent in school on cash handling means more time is available to support the smooth running of the school.
