ASN Parent Support Group

Posted by: | January 27, 2017 | No Comment |

Law Primary and North Berwick Nursery ASN Support Group has been set up by parents, for parents/guardians of children at the schools with any additional support needs. Our aim is to create a positive, supportive and confidential forum to chat, share information, ask each other’s advice, arrange get-togethers and work in partnership with the school to ensure we are getting it right for every child.

We use a confidential Facebook group to communicate with each other, and email for those not on Facebook. If you’re interested in joining, please email Carrie or Laura at: law.asngroup@gmail.com.

Next meeting will be on Wednesday 22nd February, venue to be confirmed

UPDATE
You may recall that in December last year we had a meeting at nursery to explore the possibility of offering a trial of the 1140 hours in conjunction with an outdoor nursery at North Berwick Nursery School.  Representatives of the Early Years team from the Education Department of East Lothian Council were present, together with staff from the nursery and a group of interested parents. 
Subsequent to this meeting the East Lothian staff met with a representative of the Care Inspectorate to discuss a number of issues pertaining to the proposed trial.  The council has decided that given the complexities involved in using and registering public spaces, and that there would be no gain in the number of places available within the nursery, we will not be taking forward the idea of an outdoor nursery at North Berwick as a trial for 2017-18.
I know that this news will be disappointing for many families who had hoped to be involved and it is also disappointing for staff, all of whom had been willing to try a new model and had been really creative in their thinking.  We remain committed to outdoor learning and will continue to develop the opportunities available for our children, both within the nursery grounds and out in our local community.

On the 9th of June we had a Nursery information evening.  Mrs Wareham opened the evening by talking about a recent article published by an American Occupational Therapist (OT) named Victoria Prooday.  Here is a link to the article.

Easy Peasy Peas

Posted by: | May 25, 2016 | No Comment |

The growing challenge is on. Rooms 2 and 3 decided to plant their pea seeds straight into the ground outside. Although they have started to grow, they are quite slow. However, Room 1 took the alternative route and started theirs off inside in pots and have now transferred them into the garden. You can already see a huge difference in growth. Hopefully now they have all started and the weather starts to get a little warmer and sunnier (?), things will start to take off.

On Line Payments

Posted by: | September 16, 2014 | No Comment |

You can pay nursery snack money on line:

How To Do It?

  1. Log on to East Lothian Council’s homepage at www.eastlothian.gov.uk and click on the PAY FOR IT button
  2. Select Primary School Payments from the list
  3. Select Law Primary School from the drop down list
  4. Fill in the details as requested and follow the instructions online – It is very important that you include the additional information to let us know what your payment is in respect of (transactions must be made before 8.00am to meet any deadlines for payments)
  5. Confirmation – when your payment has been completed you will be issued with a reference number. This is your record of payment however you can also request an email confirmation

Paying for more than one child/different items

If you are paying for a visit or milk for several children you can do this in one payment if you name the children individually in the ‘Additional Information’ box.

Please keep payments for different items separate to allow us to record the payments appropriately.

Charges

If you choose to pay online using a debit card there will be no charge. The charge for using a credit card is 1.9%. This would mean that a payment for an item costing £10 would cost you an additional 19p if you used a credit card but nothing if you were using a debit card.

We hope that this facility will be helpful to you however we do ask that great care is taken when completing the relevant sections to ensure we can reconcile your payments in school. Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us
