UNCRC and ELPS

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!

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 – 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.

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.

Orienteering Club!

Orienteering is an exciting outdoor adventure sport that exercises mind and body and is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
The aim is to navigate between checkpoints or controls marked on a special map. There is no set route so the skill and fun come from trying to find the best way to go. All you’ll need is a pair of trainers and suitable clothing for the weather.
Our fun activities will help us learn the basic skills to get you ready to take part in an event.
