Dear Learners in P4-7,

We are carrying out a review to find out how well East Lothian children and young people are supported at school.  This will help us understand what works well and also what we need to improve. 

You can help us by completing an online survey that gives you the opportunity to share your views.   Use the web link below to complete the online survey.  At the end of the survey you will have the opportunity to leave comments.  All responses are anonymous.  

 The survey must be completed by Friday 21st December.

British Sign Language – Making it Easier – Information Sessions

As part of the Council’s new British Sign Language Plan we are working to make it easier for deaf BSL users to contact the Council. There is a new national service available called contactScotland-BSL which can allow deaf BSL users to get in touch with us and other services.

contactSCOTLAND-BSL is a Scottish Government service that connects deaf BSL users throughout Scotland through an online BSL interpreting video relay service (VRS) with all of Scotland’s public authorities and voluntary organisations (Third Sector) and beyond.

For more information visit https://contactscotland-bsl.org/

We will be hosting demonstrations about this service on Monday 25th of November at the following times:

  • 9.30-10.30am at the Esk Rooms @ Brunton Theatre, Musselburgh
  • 12 to 1pm at  Garleton Room @ Penston House, Macmerry
  • 4-5pm at the Regent Room @  Brunton Musselburgh

This sessions are open to local organisations and individuals across East Lothian who would like to learn how to use this service. To book a space please email aedmond@eastlothian.gov.uk indicating which session you would like to attend.
