Communities asked to contribute to ELC’s Learning Estate Review

East Lothian Council have launched the website for their Learning Estate Review:

The website has information on an individual school, cluster and county basis including condition, suitability and capacity. There are also details on the context of the pre-consultation and the next steps.

After reading the information, communities can share their views by:

The pre-consultation will close on 10 December.

ELC would be grateful if community members could take the time to contribute to the pre-consultation to ensure they receive as wide a range of views as possible.

A separate consultation is being held for learners and details have been shared with Head Teachers.

ELC thank you in advance for your engagement with this important issue.

Dunbar Primary School Uniform Recycling

Reduce – Reuse – Recycle!

Help us all make the most of school uniforms by donating and reusing with our Uniform Recycling Bank.

With the environment very much in our minds at the moment, this initiative is supporting us all to reduce waste and reuse clothes that their first owners have grown out of.

Donations of clothes can be sent in with the children and collected by the office at either campus. Uniform items are free and Anna Carpico and her team sort them and get the rails out for browsing when they can but you can also contact her direct to request any specific items at:
