Welcome to the site for all things remote learning at North Ainslie Primary School.

We aim for this to be your first point of contact for your child's remote learning, whether it be their class learning, IT troubleshooting, or messages from our leadership team. We listened to your feedback from the last remote learning period and we hope this supports you all through this difficult time by providing a single entry point to remote learning for all students at NAPS. Whether you have one child, or children in multiple year groups, they can all start here.

Each year group has their own page for you to use to navigate to learning and additional supports for you and your child.

Please be sure to contact us if you have any questions, concerns, or issues. You can best contact us directly through the front office via email on

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you face to face again soon.
