Dunbar Primary School – Communication Policy

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.

Bring Your Adults to School (BOATS) – Letter issued to P1 on 08/11/19

Bring Your Adults to School (BOATS)

This half term we will be welcoming parents and carers to come into class and share in their child’s learning. We will be focussing on sharing our maths and numeracy skills with you this time.

This will take place on Friday 22nd November at 11 am.

The first part of the visit will be a short assembly in the hall where the children will perform some nursery rhymes for you.

You will have an opportunity to explore and join in with some teacher-led and independent learning activities within the classroom. You will be asked to return to the playground as normal at home-time to assist us to dismiss the children safely.

We look forward to welcoming you on the 22nd.

Kind regards

The Primary One Team
