Settling into her new role as a head teacher in Penicuik, is Vicky Donaldson, who has more than 15 years experience as a Midlothian teacher.

Ms Donaldson (41) joined Strathesk Primary last month as the replacement for Liz Barton, who retired in December.

“It’s brilliant, it is great,” said Ms Donaldson of her arrival. “I have settled in really quickly. It is so busy, so many children and so many families. It is a challenge getting to know everybody.”

Ms Donaldson takes charge of a school and nursery with a total of 14 classes and a roll of 425 pupils.
