Accessibility Strategy and Action Plan

Every local authority Education Department has a statutory duty to develop an Accessibility Strategy and action plan.  East Lothian Council is currently working on their new strategy and as part of that process  have prepared questionnaires for parents, partners and school staff.

The link to the questionnaires on the East Lothian Consultation Hub is:

Great win for our netball team.

Netball 2016 (2)

Seven East Lothian primary schools attended the netball tournament hosted by Sandersons Wynd primary school. Sandersons Wynd did an amazing job organising such a brilliant event providing  juice and biscuits and perfect facilities.  Law won every one of their matches and came home with the shield  (7-0, 3-2, 7,0, 7,0, 4,3).

We haven’t been involved in the tournament since before 2010 so what a comeback! All the girls played brilliantly but more importantly they worked really hard, played by the rules and played amazingly well as a team.  Even when decisions didn’t go their way they got on with it and played through it.  Well done to them all.
