East Lothian Council’s vision is for an even more prosperous, safe and sustainable East Lothian, with a dynamic and thriving economy, that enables our people and communities to flourish.
We believe fostering positive partnerships between parents and schools underpin our commitment to improving the quality and extent of parents’ involvement in their child’s learning and the important role they play in their child’s education.
The School Communication Policy complements the Parental Engagement Strategy. We believe effective and interactive communication promotes effective partnerships between schools and families. It helps to develop understanding and build trust between our schools, pupils, families and the communities they serve.
The purpose of this Policy is to ensure there is a consistent approach for schools to apply in ensuring effective communications between colleagues, with our pupils, with their parents and with other members of the wider community. We need to ensure that communications between all members of the school community are clear, professional, timely and appropriate. We also want to ensure the school has a high and positive profile in the local community and in the wider education sector. This will ensure Dunbar Primary School is a thriving and successful part of the community.
