Staffing Changes

Our Admin Support, Lucy McInally will be leaving us at the end of this term.  Lucy started in Roslin 8 years ago as a Learning Assistant.  She moved in to her current office role in the last 3 years.  As a valued member of the team sh ewill be greatly missed.  We know how friendly she is to all our children, parents and visitors and she plays such an important role in the school.  She has gained a new exciting opportunity within the Scottish Executive as a Modern Apprentice.  We wish her all the very best in the next stage of her career.


Angela Foley has slipped a disc in her back and has been signed off work.  This means we only have Lucy in the office to manage the Christmas activities.  We will be supporting Lucy with some learning assistant time.  We wish Angela a speedy recovery as we know she is keen to get back to work.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.


Our CCDW in the Nursery, Deborah Taylor will be leaving us at the end of term.  Deborah is a valued member of the Nursery team and will be missed by the staff, children & parents.  She has gained a new job at Mount Esk Nursery in Bonnyrigg.  We wish her all the best in the next stage of her career.
