East Lothian Support for Learning Conference 13 – 15 June

On the 13th – 15th of June, support for learning teachers from across the authority will gather for a conference in Haddington. The theme of the event is supporting pupils in mainstream classes. The wide and varied programme includes sessions delivered by staff from our school as well as presentations from Dr Margaret Crombie on Dyslexia and Moira Park, DHT at New Struan School. The conference also offers teachers an opportunity to share ideas and issues away from the demands of school.
