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

1140 hours

Posted by: | December 8, 2016 | No Comment |

Last night we had a meeting to discuss the new hours that the Scottish Government has committed to provide for 3 and 4 year olds, (as well as eligible 2 year olds) from 2020.

“Currently, free provision of early learning and child care is offered to all 3 and 4 year olds, as well as eligible 2 year olds. From August 2014, free provision increased to

600 hours per year, equivalent to around 16 hours per week if delivered during school term time. However, we are committed to increasing the early learning and childcare entitlement to 1140 hours per year by 2020. This will continue to cover all and 4 year old children, and eligible 2 year olds. High quality will be at the heart of

ELC provision, as will providing the flexibility parents need to work, train or study.

In preparation for the expansion to 1140 hours of ELC, we will establish a programme of trials testing a variety of delivery models. The aim of these trials will be to test how best to deliver ELC to all eligible children across a spectrum of differing requirements. The intention will be to develop case studies of what works, where and why, and to assist in the dissemination of best practice across local authorities and providers. In doing so, we will ensure that the expansion to 1140 hours of free provision delivers the benefits to children and families in Scotland that will be vital in achieving our ambitions.”

(Early Learning and Childcare 1140 hours Expansion- Programme of Trials – Scottish Government Discussion Paper: January 2016)

Our meeting was to engage our community in a discussion about what might work for them, and think of models that will meet the 1140 hour ambition.  Click below to look at the powerpoint we used to explore our idea.

We enjoyed watching “The Three Little Pigs” puppet show today. It was performed by some of our mummies and daddies. A BIG THANK YOU to the parents for organising this – we are so lucky!

Fun Friday-30th January 2015

Project Play are organising a dress in your onesie day on the above date to raise funds for Project Play which is set to overhaul the playgrounds at Law Primary School. We would like to support this venture, considering that most pupils at NBNS will benefit from this in future years too. Our own parents committee gave their go ahead at the last meeting.

So….feel free to let your child stay in their PJ’s or onesies this Friday and make a donation!  We will be speaking to the pupils about why they are raising money.

Room 2 will be open to AM & PM children tomorrow (Wednesday 7th January). Plumbers have fixed the leak, cleaners have “sucked” away most of the water and available nursery staff have cleaned furniture and will try to set up again later today once the dehumidifiers do their job.

We realise this will have been inconvenient but want to assure parents we looked at various options so children didn’t have to be sent home, it was a last resort.

We will be back tomorrow and look forward to seeing all the children then in a dry environment!
