Tell us your views

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.

School Houses

School Houses

We are reintroducing SCHOOL HOUSES to Cockenzie Primary School.

At assemblies before the Summer holidays, our pupils and staff agreed that we would like to reintroduce school houses to our school.

The first Family Home Learning task of this session is to create names and logos for these 4 new houses. We can’t wait to see your ideas!

Over the next few months our pupils and staff will agree on the full purpose of our new school houses. Initial ideas have been suggested by our pupils and we will build on these together.

There will be P7 House Captains and Vice Captains elected shortly whose role will be to help to drive forward this change and gather ideas from across the school.

South Of Scotland Transport Survey for Young People

The Workforce Mobility Project would like young people to complete a short five minute survey. This is a great opportunity to highlight the transport and digital barriers and challenges which impact you and your families.

This survey is for all young people, and is asking about all forms of transport, from walking, public transport, personal car use and all points in between. It is also important to hear the voices of young people who might otherwise be ignored, such as young people with disabilities, and their experience of transport in the area.

Return to School

Hello everyone

I hope you are all enjoying the summer holidays and are well.  All of us  are looking forward to welcoming P2-7 back to school and welcoming our new P1s to Cockenzie Primary.  An important letter has been emailed to you all today regarding next week, along with key information regarding what to bring/what not to bring to school.

Our priority is the safe return for all our children and staff and I for one, am so excited to see everyone next week.

Enjoy the rest of the holidays.

*Free School Meals Update from East Lothian Council*

Dear Parents and Carers,
From Wednesday 1st April 2020, all children registered for and requesting Free School Meals provision for the current period of COVID-19 School Closures will be provided with a Weekly Lunch Pack. These lunch packs will be delivered to the home address of registered pupils. Parents who had previously arranged to collect Free School Meal entitlement from Children’s Hubs will have their Weekly Lunch Packs delivered to their registered home address instead. Free School Meals registered children who access emergency childcare at one of our Children’s Hubs will continue to be provided for there.
 Easter Holiday Period – Free School Meals
Weekly Lunch Packs will continue to be delivered to registered pupil’s home addresses until further notice, including the planned Easter Holiday for schools.
Those children who are registered for Free School Meals and have been accessing a Children’s Hub Childcare place in response to their additional support needs, will have a Weekly Lunch Pack delivered to their home address for the Easter holiday period. Provision will then revert back to the Children’s Hub from Tuesday 21st April 2020.
