Primary One August Intake 2020


We have created a dedicated page for parents and carers of children who are due to start school in Primary One in August 2020. Usually this term, your child would be working with their nursery and ours to secure a successful transition experience. Even though this has not been possible in the usual way, our team are working closely with the City of Edinburgh Council to ensure that your transition experience is as exciting and supportive as it would have been. Please visit regularly for updates.

Please just get in touch if you have any questions:

We look forward to meeting you in due course and hope you find this page helpful.

P1 Intake at Towerbank Primary – 11.05.20

We are delighted that your child has been enrolled into our Primary One class for August 2020. Firstly, please may we welcome you to our Towerbank community. Some of you are already part of our community with older siblings at the school or our Towerbank Nursery families, however for some of you this will be a new community and we want to warmly welcome everyone.

We hope that you and your families are safe and well through this challenging and uncertain time. In order to support your child in preparing for Primary One we had organised a number of transition events to give them and you an opportunity to meet the other children joining Primary One and have a taste of school life. These events cannot go ahead as planned due to the global pandemic. However, we are working at a school, cluster and council level to support transition into Primary One as effectively as possible, despite the current restrictions. We will be in touch in due course about how we will be supporting transition at Towerbank. 

We would appreciate if everyone completes the form below to indicate whether you will be taking up your child’s place at Towerbank Primary or not.
