  • The PowerPoint from last night is here https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1IiNDGufSdslRf_o9nuAnicnI-qFEEdvi/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=112260792578022560108&rtpof=true&sd=true
  • To find out more about Five in a Row (and donate!)  https://www.fiveinarow.co.uk/
  • We are keen to organise some online parent info evenings and the first one we would like to do is one on online safety tips for parents.  Please email us if you know someone who can deliver this session (we have a budget for the right person).  We are looking for other ideas too – please add them to our jamboard https://jamboard.google.com/d/1n3vpCMN-ImIMeFZW15DWD7QMcsi579L1fDgcI4SlyJM/edit?usp=sharing
  • If you are interested in helping out with our plans for the playground we are looking for parents to get involved at the end of Feb / start of March – to plant trees, clear out the playground and help fix things!  Please email us or Michael ASAP as we can’t do it without your support  yournewfriendmichael@gmail.com
  • We are still looking for a parent to support the Junior Road Safety Officers – it’s a great opportunity to volunteer at the school to support a small group of pupils to help make a difference.  Please email the PC or the school office FAO Sally Penman if interested.  They have been looking for someone for a few months now, and it’s been disappointing for the pupils that no parents have come forward to support them.
  • Finally we have realised over the past 18 months that new parents starting at school are finding it very difficult when they first arrive.  We are hoping that a revamp of the parent handbook and website will help, but we have also identified a role that class reps can play in welcoming families.   They also facilitate communication between classes and the school via the Parent Council as many issues / questions are often shared by parents.  PLEASE email us if you can volunteer to be a class rep – the role is not very time consuming, it’s a nice way to get to know other parents and really does make a difference.  We are looking for reps for the following classes…

P1A

P2 – Mrs Lima and P2W

P2/3

P3W

P4L and P4K

P5G and P5M

all P6 classes

P7B and P7K and P7R

As always, please contact us if you want to get more involved or have any feedback on our meetings etc.

Best wishes

Dear Parents / Carers,

The next Parent Council Meeting is on Monday 7 June at 7pm online and you can register through this link

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/law-parent-council-meeting-monday-7-june-tickets-157456632025.

Since we have moved these sessions online we have seen attendance increase massively which is brilliant and thanks very much to everyone who joined us. These meetings are an opportunity for you to hear directly from the Headteacher and other school stakeholders about issues that affect our children.

The agenda for the session is still being finalised and if you would like to suggest any areas for discussion then please post them here  https://jamboard.google.com/d/1oZDAbrUnFnz4ZMxBGLPJ2bEPnsFDb4R50HA52qUwwE0/edit?usp=sharing

All welcome – you do not have to be a member of the Parent Council or been to any previous meetings.

This is an informal event so no participation necessary – grab a cuppa and listen in.

We hope you can make it along, so much work continues to happen behind the scenes to make sure our kids are safe, happy and healthy at school. More than ever our school community needs us all to work together. If you are keen to get more involved in the Parent Council please do email us before or after the meeting to find out how – we are a friendly group of parents and always welcome new voices and ideas.

Thanks and see you on 7 June.

Posted by Caroline Danks | Posted in Parent Council meetings, Safer Routes to School | Posted on 30-04-2021

Thanks to all of you for attending the meetings this week and for your conversation and thoughts – we’ve appreciated every email we have received in response to the campus plans and other issues raised.  If you have a particular passion, skill or idea please do get in touch – we are a big school and there is so much we can contribute.  You can pop in and get involved on a specific project or longer term support the school with ideas and issues they approach us about.  We are a friendly and enthusiastic group of parents and really welcome you to get involved.  It benefits all our kids!

Just to update:

  • Attached are the minutes from the last meeting in March.  Minutes 8 March 2021
  • The PowerPoint presentation from Monday is here
  • Attached are the wider plan for safer routes.  The drone footage of Friday pickups will be uploaded to the website soon.
  • Attached is the Parent Council mock up – how to make the ‘campus’ safer and more accessible.  We have now shared this with East Lothian Council and Stantec.  The school staff have been very supportive of us as we have put together these proposals as they share our hope for a more sustainable and a safer campus.  However please note the proposals are draft and have not been formally agreed with staff, ELC or Stantec.  There are many challenges ahead however we hope that parents will support the vision for the campus.
  • If you would like to share your thoughts (comments / caveats / objections) about our response to the nursery application please fill in this form before the end of today (Friday) https://forms.gle/2Df3iFoFPKgMYs5X9
  • Nursery parents (now or future) – Rebecca Rennie is now leading a sub-group so the nursery is represented at the Parent Council.  Please email the Parent Council if you would like to join and she will be in touch.  We realised through the new nursery application that the nursery parents were not represented within the Parent Council so this group aims to do that from now on.
  • Finally we have a few keen parents who would like to get stuck into the playground – it’s such a great opportunity to contribute and get involved.  Anyone who is creative, practical or just motivated to improve the playground for the kids please email the Parent Council and we will put you all in touch.  As we said we have been offered a boat for the kids, but need parents to take responsibility to spruce it up and work with the school to make sure it is safe for the kids.  The staff have always encouraged Project Playground teams and the Parent Council and PTA will support with ideas and funds.  Please get involved!

Best wishes

The Parent Council Team
