East Linton Primary is a Rights Respecting School.
There are four key areas of impact for children at a Rights Respecting school; wellbeing, participation, relationships and self-esteem.
The difference that a Rights Respecting School makes goes beyond the school gates, making a positive impact on the whole community.
- Children are healthier and happier
- Children feel safe
- Children have better relationships
- Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world
As a school, we are renewing our Bronze Award and have prioritised the teaching of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child in our School Improvement Plan.
We are going to be engaging with the UNCRC closely in January and February so keep an eye out on Twitter and the Website for all of our learning and ask us about what we learn at home too!

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 – www.eastlothian.gov.uk/ler – 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 www.eastlothian.gov.uk/ler
The pre-consultation will close on 10 December 2021.
This link contains information for parents/carers about the P1 enrolment process for those children age-eligible to start P1 in August 2022.

Division is the opposite of times tables. You can also use them in fact families. For example: 3 x 4 = 12. 12 / 3 = 4 and 12 / 4 = 3. Other strategies are grouping, sharing, number line and inverse! (SR, OM, LS)

We made a friendship tree to show how you know if someone is a friend or not. We also played a friendship game. There were two of the same objects in a bag, you pulled on out and then find the person that has the same object. Then you had to find something you had in common. (SW, HW, NG)
