THE BUILDING
It has been yet another difficult year for accommodation here at South Morningside Primary School (SMPS). We have had work done on our roof, our chimneys and our boundary wall. We have had leaks and floods too! We hope that 2012 will be an easier year.

OVERCROWDING
Of great concern to parents has been the large P1 intake. This has had a knock-on effect to our P2 classes and have resulted in one P2 class being in the annexe for two years. Contributing factors to this large intake include the following:

  • The City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) altering its deferral policy
  • Continued rise in birth rates in this area
  • Continued influx of families with primary school age children into the area.
