Mrs Legge wanted to send you something to share and celebrate the work that has been happening within our school communities over the last fortnight. This has no doubt been a challenging time, but I want to thank pupils, parents and staff alike for their commitment and efforts in engaging with remote learning and all the contributions that you have made.
We know that learning takes many forms, and that as well as engaging with online tasks, learning has been happening within and around the home in lots of ways.
We hope you enjoy the presentation attached, thank you once again for all your support
With current COVID-19 restrictions on parents entering East Lothian Council school buildings, it will not be possible for parents to visit their catchment school to enrol their child for the P1 intake in August 2021.
East Lothian Council’s Education Service are currently looking at alternative options for the P1 enrolment this year. Further information regarding P1 enrolment will be available soon.
