Primary 1 classes will be commencing their French lessons after the October break.

Four CLPL courses for Beginners French are being offered week beginning 1/9/15. They will be held in Preston Lodge High School, Musselburgh High School , Ross High School and Knox High School. Courses run for 6 weeks until the October break. A French Immersion Day is also being run for East Lothian staff at the French Institute in Edinburgh on 3/10/15. More details available on CPDShare.

Remember to check  our Useful Websites page for resources. It will be updated  regularly.

Staff training


Law Primary and Dunbar Primary have both been successful in their applications for Erasmus+ funding which will be used to send members of staff on immersion courses over the next two years. We will be supporting other schools in the autumn term with bids for funding for future years.

We have also now set up a link with the Académie of Caen to enable school to school links (P1 classes prioritised) and future staff training opportunities. We are therefore looking for 13 primary schools initially to set up partnerships with schools in Cherbourg. More information has been sent to Head Teachers. Contact B. Murray for more information.
