School Council Minutes 2017-18

Empowering Schools Consultation

Dear Parent Council Member,

As agreed at the last East Lothian Association of Parent Council Members Meeting, we have arranged to hold a further meeting for Parent Council members and the wider parent forum,  to meet with Fiona Robertson, Head of Education, on Tuesday 9th January, 2018, at 7pm in Musselburgh Grammar School,  to discuss the above Consultation following the concerns raised by parents on how to interpret some of the points/questions contained within the Scottish Government’s Consultation, which closes on 30 January, 2018.    I attach some background information regarding this consultation for your information.

I would appreciate if you could please let us know if you plan to attend this meeting on 9th January, 2018, by emailing

As the period of consultation is very tight, and the DGSC will therefore will not have time to co-ordinate a unified response, they are requesting that parent/carers consider making an individual response before the consultation closes on 21st January. Please use the following link to do so:
