During my 10 years with Midlothian Council, I have worked in a number of schools across the authority as a Class Teacher, Principal Teacher and Depute Head.
It is a privilege to be leading Moorfoot Primary School and I would like to thank everyone for making me feel so welcome already. I plan to spend time in each of our classes this week to get to know the children better but I have been extremely impressed by the kind and positive ethos across the school.
I recognise that change can be unsettling, therefore if there is anything you wish to discuss with me, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to arrange a meeting with myself.
I look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure the best learning experiences for the children.

At the start of this week the whole school voted for which charities they thought the school should support this year. Two people from each class prepared a presentation about their charity and at the end everyone voted for their favourite charity. The charity with the most votes was Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland as presented by Fergus Oswald therefore that will now be the school’s priority when fundraising. Well done to everyone who presented a charity!
