Common School Day Consultation

On 12 June 2018 a paper was presented to Cabinet seeking approval to undertake a feasibility study and consultation on the introduction of a Common Secondary School Day and potential resultant benefits for Primary education. A feasibility consultation document has now been prepared and a feasibility consultation has commenced. 

East Lothian Council Education Service would like to hear your views on the feasibility consultation, which will run until Sunday 11 November.
