Head Teacher Welcome

I am delighted to be writing to you as the new Acting Head Teacher of Moorfoot Primary School and would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.

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.

Best wishes.

Lynsey Stevenson

Charities and Maths Week!


 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!

Scottish maths week

 This week was Scottish maths week and every class made a huge effort to do different types of maths. Class 4 did a lots of visual maths like making  cubes out of sugar cubes to help us with our work.

P5 up to P7 were skiing on Wednesday and we all had good fun. It was good to be able to go on the slope and have good fun on the slope with some friends! We all enjoyed it because the majority of us went up very high. Mr. Weedon also took part,he was actually  really good and went to the highest and the steepest point and never fell.


The other week we chose the prefects that will be prefects up until middle of January. The prefects until January are Robert, Archie, Callum, Charlotte, Hamish, Eilidh,and Skye.The people that will be prefects next year will be Euan,Rory,Bethany,Katie,Millie,Rachel and Molly
