P1 – P3 parents/carers’ Meeting

Dear P1, P2 and P3 Parents and Carers

As we move towards schools opening up again to parents and carers we are now able to offer face to face meetings to discuss your child’s progress.  These will take place one evening or on a Friday afternoon, in school, in the summer term – dates still to be finalised.    Some parents and carers have however expressed a preference for such meetings to continue to be online.  This may be because of child care or ease of access or to be more time efficient.    To this end we are considering offering a choice.  To help with this please complete the survey (link below) by Friday April 8th, expressing your preference.  We will then make a final decision and share arrangements.

Many thanks

P3 Show: Pirates Versus Mermaids

Pirates Versus Mermaids School Musical | Out of the Ark

Dear P3F Parents and Carers

As I am sure you are aware P3 are busy rehearsing their P3 show Pirates V Mermaids.   In  normal circumstances you would be invited indoors, and in the warm, to watch the performance.  However as we are still working under COVID restrictions indoors is not possible so we have moved outdoors.  The show must go on! You are very welcome to come along to the front playground on Tues Dec 14th at 9.15am.  Please do dress warmly as it is December!  The show will be standing only.

In line with COVID guidance everyone attending is asked to wear a face covering, unless exempt, and to stand 2m distanced from other households.  Please complete the form below to allow us to have an indication of numbers.

To keep costume simple all the children have been supplied with a large T shirt which they will be welcome to keep as a souvenir.  If you are in a position to pay £2 to cover the cost this would be much appreciated.  Money can be sent in as cash or paid on parentpay. 

I look forward to seeing those of you able to come along.

Best wishes

Recently, we published evidence that cells use the chloride from salt to fight viral infections. Also, nasal irrigation with salt water helped reduce the cold in adults. Hence, we are now testing if salt water nose drops helps children fight the cold.

If you have a child under 7 years of age, you may be able to join the fight.

The Children’s Hospital in Edinburgh are doing a study of salt water nose drops to see if it helps get rid of the cold faster.

Your child does not need to have a cold right now to take part!

You can join right now by calling/texting 07973657457 for an appointment to sign up and to be taught what to do the next time your child has a cold.

Your child does not need to attend.

Families completing the study will receive travel expenses and a £30 voucher to compensate for any inconvenience.

Dear P1 – P3 parents and carers

Please see below a request from a former Trinity Primary pupil.  As you will read she is currently studying for a master’s degree and is looking for parents and carers to complete a simple questionnaire.  Permission has been granted for this from CEC.  If you have a few moments and are willing to take part I know that Jessica and her research assistant would be most grateful.

Many thanks

Dear Parents and Carers

My name is Jessica Dolan.  I am a former pupil of Trinity Primary.   I am contacting you on behalf of myself and my research partner, Paulette Marie Yelton. We are both currently masters students in Developmental Psychology at Maastricht University. I am from Scotland and Paulette is from the U.S and has previously lived in Spain. As part of our master’s thesis, we are conducting a cross-cultural study to examine children’s screen-based media use and their behavioural tendencies. 

For our study, we want to gain a better understanding of young children’s, specifically, 4-8 year olds, screen media use and the relationship this has with their behavioural tendencies. Previous research has found a link between various behavioural tendencies such as repetitive or patterned behaviours, difficulties in communication with others, difficulties in distraction, and inappropriate social responses and increased screen media use.

We are looking for parents and legal guardians of Scottish and Spanish children aged 4-8 years old to participate in our survey. Participation involves completing a three-part online questionnaire. The survey can be accessed by a QR-code on the attached jpeg or via a link and takes around 20-30 minutes to complete.  All participation is completely anonymous, data cannot be traced back to the participant, nor is any data about the child or parent/legal guardian stored by Maastricht University.  

Your cooperation and participation in this study would be greatly appreciated.

Please do not hesitate to contact us or our supervisor if you have any queries or questions regarding our research.

Kind regards, 

Jessica Dolan
