East Lothian have produced a leaflet in recognition that the cost of living is increasing rapidly and prices are rising; this includes energy bills, food, fuel and more. In the leaflet East Lothian has tried to consolidate information
about financial support available to help ease the cost of living challenges faced by many local households.
The council is sharing detailed information on its school buildings with a new website giving a full picture of its estate at individual school, cluster and East Lothian level.
The website – www.eastlothian.gov.uk/ler – brings together information on the condition, suitability and capacity of existing schools and the council is keen to hear the views of families, communities and learners.
This is part of the development of a Learning Estate Investment Plan for East Lothian. The plan will set out the council’s investment priorities for its schools to make sure that all facilities support high quality teaching and learning equally across the county, and to outline the investment needed for this to happen. It will also consider how school buildings support community use.
The feedback will be analysed alongside the results of the online questionnaire that was held in February and presented at a future council meeting. For more information, including dates of event in your area and a link to the questionnaire, visit www.eastlothian.gov.uk/ler
The pre-consultation will close on 10 December 2021.
The focus of today’s assembly was ‘What makes a successful learner?‘
We explored the skills and attributes that we need to be successful:
Miss Elgin, Miss Robson and I then went on a tour to hear about Campie’s successful learners . . .
Wow – we were impressed! Classes found it difficult to choose which new learning they wanted to share with us. In the discussions we had, learners were enthusiastic, motivated and shared lots of detail about what and how they had learned.
What a wonderful way to spend a morning! ⭐
Why not check out the Twitter feed to see some of the great examples of learning that were shared with us!
See below same photos of other learning . . cakes, clavicle, clay, cooperation, caterpillar, collaboration, communication and much much more! 👍
This week’s HT update provided details of two surveys we would like you to participate in.
Whilst as a team we reflect on our successes and achievements, it is your child’s experience of school and the impact on their learning that is critical in helping us to identify what is working well and what we could do better. Therefore, your child is involved in providing their feedback and has a
voice in determining our next steps. It is also crucial that you can contribute to this process. The more contributions we have, the more accurate our evaluation will be and next year’s plan will have clearly identified priorities based on robust and valid evidence. To prevent ‘survey fatigue,’ I have shared two surveys this week and politely request that you contribute to one more another next week.
As part of my HT updates I will detail the outcome and how these have been ‘mapped’ into our School Improvement Plan. Our Standards and Quality report will also provide insight into the outcome of both parental and learner input.
Please take a few minutes to provide your feedback.
