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.

The whole early years team have been working really hard over the last few years to develop practice. Hard work has paid off and we were recently awarded the ELC Innovation Award from the Scottish Government. We enjoyed meeting the Scottish Minister for Children and Young People, Ms Maree Todd, who visited to find out about the innovation, meet the children and staff and hand over the award. The team have launched a research project which will further develop the identified innovation, the Map-do-review method. Below is the storyboard designed by Mrs Laing, which shows the theory of change for the project. Mrs Laing will be sharing the project work at various conferences as it progresses over 2019-2020.

The setting held a very successful Open Session for our families on Monday the 25th March. Mr Taylor and Mrs Laing shared information on the process of change to date and a PowerPoint demonstrating how content and confident the Early Years children had been during the transition to the 1140 hours. Please view the PowerPoint below and find out for yourself how well the children coped and embraced change. We wish to thank the parents for their partnership work with practitioners, making the whole experience a success for their children.

We are delighted to be able to advise that the recruitment process for our Early Years Team is now complete, and we are very much looking forward to Mrs Fiona Nightingale joining us on 4 February as an additional Early Years Practitioner. Mrs Nightingale has extensive experience in Early Years provision, as well as a teaching background, and, of course, has a deep knowledge of Innerwick PS from a parent and Parent Council member’s perspective. We wish to welcome Fiona to the Innerwick team, and look forward to working with her very soon.
Innerwick Early Years Team are delighted and proud to have been selected as a Setting of Innovation and Impact 2018 by The Scottish Government. We are one of six settings in Scotland chosen from more than 70 applications. Staff will work with The Scottish Government’s ELC Quality Team from January 2019 to share their play-based pedagogical approach nationally. Please read and learn about some of the play-based development work and view our submission of evidence to The Scottish Government. Furthermore we also wish to share the Improvement Plan for the coming year 2018-2019.
