Sport Facility Bookings

The City of Edinburgh Council have recently asked Edinburgh Leisure to process block bookings for sports clubs at all High Schools.  This is a separate piece of work to the ongoing conversations about ‘operational transfer’ of High School sports facilities to Edinburgh Leisure to operate community time (after 6.00pm weekdays, weekends and holiday periods).

Accordingly, if you are a sports club, group or organisation and wish to make a block booking of a high school sport facility, please contact:

schoolbookings@edinburghleisure.co.uk or call 0131 458 2212.

IMPORTANT: Consent Packs for Vaccinations

Consent packs for vaccinations from NHS Lothian are out now for pupils in S3 (and in S4 – S6 who have not yet received their vaccinations). 

Every year, pupils in S3 are offered the Teenage booster  to complete their life long protection, through routine immunisations, against tetanus, diphtheria and polio.   Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.

In addition to the Teenage Booster vaccination, all S3 pupils are recommended to have a meningitis vaccine (ACWY).  This protects against several strains including the W strain of meningitis which is on the increase across the UK.  Any pupils in S4 – S6 who have not yet received this vaccination will also be offered this.

Please read the letter, discuss the vaccinations and return completed and signed consent forms to school as soon as possible.
