Meet our JRSOs!

Spence and Oscar 


JRSO stands for Junior Road Safety Officer!

At East Linton Primary we have two JRSOs who help raise road safety awareness and promote road safety issues to everyone in the school and the wider community. Here are just some of the activities JRSOs can get involved in:

  • Talk at assemblies and to classes on road safety topics
  • Run competitions in the school, get prizes for the winners and hand out merit certificates
  • Use the website
  • Get involved in organising safe and active travel activities.


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!

Update on P4 learning

We are learning about circuits, we learnt about the symbols we use to draw circuits and had a go at making human circuits in groups. We thought about what would stop our circuits from working and how to sort those problems.
We are using our IT skills to try some online shopping, looking to find the best prices and hopefully grab a bargain.
We have been putting our grid reference and coordinate learning to good use, we used a map to find places, work out distances and plan routes.
We have been working on character and setting in our writing, we made triaramas to create our own settings we will be adding characters and will use these to inspire our descriptive writing.
Busy days in P4!

P6 News 9th December!

This week has been very exciting with our circular economy challenge! It is all finally all coming together. We have been finishing off our group posters and creating presentations which we will use to support our Dragon’s Den style pitch. We will be filming these and sending them off to the Circular Economy Challenge. We were lucky to have three companies Viridor, Changeworks and Skanska came online with us to tell us about their circular economy companies. We were able to ask them questions and find out about different jobs and how we will use our enterprise skills when we’re older.

We had another live coding session with Codeclub and DigiLearn. This time we created a catch a reindeer game, having to use different variables. It was great to use our skills we learnt previously and to build on these. Lots of collaboration going on to help each other complete their game. We are having another Christmas themed live coding lesson next week involving Jazzy Christmas Jumpers for confident coders. Very exciting!

P6 parents- please continue to use Google Classroom for our weekly updates.

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 – – 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

The pre-consultation will close on 10 December 2021.
