We are carrying out a review to find out how well East Lothian children and young people are supported at school. This will help us understand what works well and also what we need to improve.
You can help us by completing an online survey that gives you the opportunity to share your views. Use the web link below to complete the online survey. At the end of the survey you will have the opportunity to leave comments. All responses are anonymous.

Schools were given an opportunity to help compile a shortlist of names for East Lothian’s new town.
Responses were received from 28 schools in East Lothian. A panel consisting of councillors and senior officers then met to consider the responses.
The panel determined that the most popular and suitable names were Charlestoun, Hattonfield, Hopetoun, Muirdale and Nethermuir. The panel also decided that the name Blindwells should be included on a shortlist of potential names for public consultation.
The public consultation was recently launched and can be found on the council’s Consultation Hub:
The consultation is also being promoted via the council’s Living newspaper, which will be delivered to households in East Lothian from 25 November. The closing date is 5 December.
