Accessibility Strategy and Action Plan

Every local authority Education Department has a statutory duty to develop an Accessibility Strategy and action plan.  East Lothian Council is currently working on their new strategy and as part of that process  have prepared questionnaires for parents, partners and school staff.

The link to the questionnaires on the East Lothian Consultation Hub is:

Euroquiz Finalists

The P6 Euroquiz team travelled to Heriot Watt University on Tuesday to represent East Lothian at the annual event which is run by the Scottish European Educational Trust.  Our children competed against 31 other teams from all over Scotland.  They worked in pairs and as a team to answer extremely challenging questions on language skills and European knowledge.  They prepared very well for the event and were a credit to the school. Well done Maddie, Poppy, David and Finlay.  We are incredibly proud of you! The SEET website link can be found here.SAM_7686
