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.

We recognise it has been a different start to the school year with restrictions impacting our normal forms of communication, such as parent consultations. We are pleased to share a short video from your child’s class teacher with you. The video will give you an insight into your child’s daily experiences and a chance to see their learning environment.  Class teachers have also endeavoured to answer general queries from the Forms questionnaire.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your child’s class teacher through the school office, admin@blackhall.edin.sch.uk should you have any questions, queries or news to share.
