You may be aware that the Sun newspaper has launched a campaign which gives schools the opportunity to receive new school books in return for coupons which are being published daily in the newspaper throughout the week and also in The Scottish Sunday Sun.

We have registered Cuiken Primary School for this and we have a target of 3,500 tokens to collect. They must be cut out of the newspaper and handed into school. Schools have to return the coupons to the newspaper in order to receive the books.

We appreciate that our school community is always very supportive in these events and we are asking you to encourage family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues etc. to collect the coupons for us. This runs from now until the 18th of November.

If we manage to achieve the total of coupons, we will receive a pack of 105 Collins Books worth £550 which would be a great addition in our school.

So, get collecting now! Many thanks for your support with this.

ParentPay – Online Payment Service

ParentPay – Our New Online School Payment Service

ParentPay is an online payment system for schools. It allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, milk, trips and much more.

I’m delighted to inform you that our school will go-live with ParentPay on 27th November 2017.  

The system is easy-to-use and offers parents and carers the freedom to make online payments by credit or debit card, whenever and wherever they like, 24/7.

What parents and carers can do now

  • If you haven’t already, please create an account with our Midlothian Council website where you can also find out more about ParentPay
  • If you don’t think we have your up to date email address, please email us at by 13/11/17.

Parents and carers will be sent individual letters detailing the account activation procedure nearer the time and user guides will be available online.

We will of course continue to accept cash and cheque payments as necessary but we do hope that parents will use the new online facility. Less time spent in school on cash handling means more time is available to support the smooth running of the school.
