Focussed School Review

 

 

Dear Parents and Carers

During the week beginning the 1st of April 2019 a local authority team visited our school to undertake a focused school review. We are delighted that we are now able to share the outcome of the visit.

In the report there are positives which a have been highlighted and next steps and aspects for improvement which have been identified.  In conjunction with our own ongoing self-evaluation we have used the review recommendations to inform our School Improvement Plan for 2019/2020.

We look forward to the whole school community working together to bring about the improvements identified.

Progressing Children’s Rights in Scotland – An Action Plan 2018-21: Consultation

Progressing Children’s Rights in Scotland – An Action Plan 2018-21: Consultation

On 2 July, the SG published the consultation on Progressing Children’s Rights in Scotland – An Action Plan 2018-21.

The link below will take you to a shortened version of that consultation, designed for children and young people.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child – what is it?

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is an international treaty that sets out the rights that all children and young people under the age of 18 have.

What are Rights?

Rights are about making sure people are treated well and get a fair deal. They set out the sorts of things that must be put in place for this to happen. Everybody has rights. Children’s rights are human rights. The rights set out in the UNCRC include, for example, the right of children and young people to an education, good quality health care, to be protected from being hurt or badly treated and the right to relax and play.

If I Were Provost… a competition for the Year of Young People

Young people in East Lothian are being asked to get creative and share their ideas on how to make the county a better place for young people, for a competition held as part of the Year of Young People.

 

The council has launched If I Were Provost – a competition that asks young people what would they do if they were ‘in charge’, how they would improve life for young people in the region, what new policies they might introduce and why.

 

You may wish to convey your ideas in:

  • A short story
  • A letter to our Provost John McMillan
  • A poem
  • A diary entry or blog
  • A graphic comic strip
  • Or any creative approach that you think is best!

There are two categories:

  • category 1 (ages 8 – 13)
  • category 2 (ages 14 – 18).

One winner from each category will be invited to act as a Young Provost alongside Provost John McMillan at a number of events throughout 2018. The winners will also receive a goody bag of gifts from East Lothian tourist attractions. The winning entries, plus a selection of entries received, will be on display at libraries throughout the county during the summer of 2018.

 

For more information, go to www.eastlothian.gov.uk/provostcompetition

 

The closing date for entries is Friday 11 May 2018.
