Orchard Festival

This is the time of the year when we celebrate the produce of our Rainbow Centenary Orchard.

Traditionally, our parents collaborate with school staff to support the work of the school by planning, preparing and delivering a day of activities to celebrate the annual harvest.

Due to the current restrictions this has not been possible this year:(

Instead, we have planned a week long celebration of our orchard that all classes are enjoying this week:)

Keep an eye on what is happening at  school as we celebrate our biggest harvest yet.





Nurture, Recovery & Reconnection

We are approaching the mid-term break of our 1st term back in school since school buildings closed in March 2020.

 It has been fabulous to welcome everyone back into school, with all staff working incredibly hard to ensure the start of this school year is memorable for all the right reasons.

As you know, we have focused our return to school on utilising the natural, nurturing abilities of our staff to support the physical and mental health & wellbeing of the children.

The school improvement plan outlines the priorities we have identified for this session.  The full version can be accessed here;  School Improvement Plan 2020/21  .  An abbreviated version can be accessed here; School Improvement Plan 2020/21

More information on nurture, recovery & reconnection can be found on the website developed by East Lothian Council; Nurture, Recovery & Reconnection in Schools
