Return to School Guidance 5th January 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

There will be an update published on the school website and sent to all parents and carers on Monday 3rd January regarding return to school guidance for pupils of Dunbar Primary/Nursery.

As you will appreciate we are in a dynamic situation and any local school guidance published tomorrow may be superseded by updated National Guidance prior to Wednesday 5th January. If this is the casse we will update as a matter of priority.

H Gillanders, Headteacher

Tell us your views

The council is sharing detailed information on its school buildings with a new website giving a full picture of its estate at individual school, cluster and East Lothian level.

The website – – brings together information on the condition, suitability and capacity of existing schools and the council is keen to hear the views of families, communities and learners.

This is part of the development of a Learning Estate Investment Plan for East Lothian. The plan will set out the council’s investment priorities for its schools to make sure that all facilities support high quality teaching and learning equally across the county, and to outline the investment needed for this to happen. It will also consider how school buildings support community use.

To share your feedback you can:


The feedback will be analysed alongside the results of the online questionnaire that was held in February and presented at a future council meeting. For more information, including dates of event in your area and a link to the questionnaire, visit

The pre-consultation will close on 10 December 2021.
