Coffee Morning – Friday 25th May @11am

The school would like to extend an invitation to all families and  neighbours to come along to our next coffee morning on Friday 25th May when we will officially open our outdoor classroom.

The children will lead the morning, informing our community of the outdoor learning opportunities that they engage with whilst attending our beautiful school.

We would be most grateful if families could support this morning by providing us with some  fabulous home baking!

So… we look forward to cup cakes, tray bakes and all the scrumptious, delicious cakes that you kindly donate.

Thanks in advance of your generosity.


Can you help?


We urgently need more people to take the plunge and find out about fostering with East Lothian Council.

East Lothian Council’s Education and Children’s Services spokesperson Councillor Shamin Akhtar says:

‘We have children and young people who need foster carers urgently. The demand is always growing and we need more people to come forward very soon and give their love and support to some vulnerable children and young people who really, really need them

‘As you know, we set great store in East Lothian in keeping our looked-after children in or very close to East Lothian, so that very vulnerable children don’t have to change schools or lose touch with their friends and wider families. Not every fostering agency thinks this is important but we do – we really see the value in not sending children far away from everyone and everything they know. So, I’d just like to say how grateful I am to all our current foster carers for choosing to Foster East Lothian and for the fantastic job they do – they make a difference every day. I hope that there will be a number of people reading this article now who will also be able to make that difference and be the ones that our children so desperately need.’
