Staff Car Park and Accessible Parking @ Lochend Campus

We are aware that an increasing number of parents are using this area more and more frequently. This is potentially endangering children in the school community. If you need to gain access in the event of an emergency this should still be communicated to the school via a phone call.
As you may know, East Lothian Council schools are using the Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood programme (RSHP) to support our teaching in the Health and Wellbeing aspects of Curriculum for Excellence.
We are in the process of implementing the programme across the school. There was previous post on the updates about this.
The full programme, including lesson plans, is available on their website https://rshp.scot/ and we encourage you to have a look and discuss with your children what they have been covering at school.
Early Level covers Nursery to P1, First Level is P2-P4 and 2nd Level is P5-P7.
The programme is aimed at delivering Beginning to the first stage within a level (for example P2 for First Level) and Progression 2 for the last stage within a level (for example Progression 2 for Second Level in P7).
Please contact the school if you have any question or any other reason related to this programme.

B2b Sounds Stories Film Project
with Dave Trouton from the Youth Music Initiative and in collaboration with professional film makers, Jonathan Charles and Simone Bloomfield. We are one of 4 schools who have been chosen to take part.
Each school will take on a ‘department’ within the film making process and will work together to produce an animated film which will be premiered and shared with the school community at the end of term. We are doing the sound part of the project.
We are working with Longniddry, Macmerry and Innerwick Primary schools on this exciting project.
The P5 classes enjoyed their listening walks this week. Here are some pupils from P5b sharing stories about the outdoors.
