Essential School Information – Covid 19

26 June 2020

It has been a difficult and very strange term for all of us but we look forward to welcoming our pupils back into school in August.  To our P7 pupils we say “good luck,” whatever high school you are going to.

Have a wonderful summer!

From everyone at Colinton.


During the school shutdown this will be our homepage.  All important updates will be posted here and all relevant information about learning will be posted on the class pages.  Remember, if you have any queries then please contact us at:

Colinton virtual sports

Here are some ideas from the nursery team for extra fun sports activities – have your own ‘Teddy Bear Olympics’. Please join in with whichever activities you would like and enjoy as part of the whole school virtual sports days!

We had a wee celebration on Friday 29 May.  The slide show is a selection of the pictures from our Colinton community who enjoyed the sunshine for their tea party.  The TV episode of the Beechgrove Garden below shows how the “Room To Grow” started off.  Enjoy!
