Grants from ELTF

The Edinburgh and Lothian Trust Fund (ELTF) has taken over the administration process of the Edinburgh Police Fund for Children. The purpose of the fund is to provide grants for outer clothing and footwear for school age children from families in “straitened circumstances” who reside in the City of Edinburgh district.

The information leaflet available here as a download explains who can apply for assistance and how to apply.

New Information Pages

At this week’s information evening for P7 families joining the school we provided those attending with a pamphlet with information from parents about the school. Our aim was to pass on helpful information from other parents at the start of a family’s journey through high school.

The pamphlet for 2017 is available as a download. and we’ve added this information to the website as pages that can be used any time and may be of interest to existing parents too.
