East Lothian Council’s Arts Service has programmed a fun packed summer of creative activities for 5 – 18 year olds to fill the holidays. The programme includes: themed multi arts camps, youth theatre, musical theatre, streetdance, computer animation, outdoor theatre and more.
All activities are booked online at www.eastlothian.gov.uk/summeractivities and a pdf of the leaflet can also be downloaded from East Lothian Council’s website here.
This was discussed at the Parent Council last night. Frequently asked questions about composite classes can be found HERE.
We organise composite classes in accordance with East Lothian Council policy and this is done on the basis of dates of birth. Maximum class sizes are 25 in P1, 30 in P2 and P3 and 33 in all other classes except composites which are 25. We are required to keep six spaces at each year stage for any children who join the school during the course of the academic session.

Homework packs for P3 – 7 are now available on the school website. They can be found under the ‘About Our School’ heading.
If you require a hard copy of any of the activities, please specify which pages/topics you would like, and feel free to contact us with any questions.
We are now expecting our P7s back at Law at 1.30pm.
As advised in the letter sent home, P7 are due to arrive back in North Berwick at approximately 1pm, depending on traffic. Should this change we will let you know.
Our P7s attending this year’s residential trip have made it safely to Lagganlia. They arrived at 1pm and have already started their activities for the week. Have fun P7!
We urgently need more people to take the plunge and find out about fostering with East Lothian Council.
East Lothian Council’s Education and Children’s Services spokesperson Councillor Shamin Akhtar says:
‘We have children and young people who need foster carers urgently. The demand is always growing and we need more people to come forward very soon and give their love and support to some vulnerable children and young people who really, really need them.
‘As you know, we set great store in East Lothian in keeping our looked-after children in or very close to East Lothian, so that very vulnerable children don’t have to change schools or lose touch with their friends and wider families. Not every fostering agency thinks this is important but we do – we really see the value in not sending children far away from everyone and everything they know. So, I’d just like to say how grateful I am to all our current foster carers for choosing to Foster East Lothian and for the fantastic job they do – they make a difference every day. I hope that there will be a number of people reading this article now who will also be able to make that difference and be the ones that our children so desperately need.’
