Message from Mhari-Louise Teden and NHS Lothian,

We are aware of a person in Blackhall Primary School who has tested positive for COVID-19. We understand this is a worrying time but would like to reassure you that we are working closely with NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance.

Persons are currently being contacted because they may have been in close and sustained contact with the case and will need to self-isolate and asked to have a test for COVID-19. They will be given appropriate guidance and advice.

An update via text and/or email will be sent to you as soon as the tracking and tracing process is complete.

If there are any further cases of COVID-19 in Blackhall Primary School, we will ensure these individuals, and any of their close contacts, are advised to self-isolate promptly. If you have not been contacted and your child remains well, you should continue to follow the school’s existing arrangements for your child.

Enhanced cleaning and infection control measures are in place in line with national guidance. The school is safe and remains open.

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website http://www.nhsinform.scot or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.

Please note that a test should only be booked if you or your child has these specifics symptoms.

Remember to stay at home if anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19.

Mhari-Louise Teden


Welcome to the Blackhall Primary School website.  We hope that you find it full of interesting and useful information.


The deadline for families to apply for Best Start Grant School Age Payment is 28 February 2021.

The one-off £250 payment is currently open to families with a child born between 1 March 2015 and 29 February 2016. It can be used for anything from a warm coat to books and toys.

Parents who have deferred their child’s entry to school from August 2020 to August 2021, or those home educating, should still apply before the closing date.

The payment is part of the Best Start Grant, a package of three payments for families who get tax credits or certain benefits – including Universal Credit, Income Support and Housing Benefit.
