School closure

Edenside Primary; a resilient school


During these unprecedented times as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the team here at Edenside (and in close partnership with our local schools) is doing everything in our power to support our families. We are committed to doing our part.

At the moment, our supports include:

  • Edenside Cares: a programme of supports ensuring every child gets to speak, in person, to a member of school staff every week.
  • Home learning: a programme of SUGGESTED tasks and challenges that children can do IF HELPFUL over the period of school closures.
  • Key worker Hub: a care service for the children of key workers and identified vulnerable children. This is being hosted at Broomlands Primary school but is staffed by adults from all Kelso schools. This service is available from 7.30am – 6pm, 7 days a week, including holidays.
  • ‘Community support’: a service to any vulnerable residents in our local area. This is being supported by Scottish Borders Council. If you know of anyone in need of support during this difficult time, please let us know by filling in our new contact form.

We will provide as much information and support as we can.
