Parental Survey-help us to work together for your child and our school

Please help us evaluate East Lothian Council’s Parental Engagement Strategy and at the same time help us to work together for your child and our school.

Feedback is always helpful to plan how we can work together as partners in your child’s learning. We are committed to doing our best so please take a moment and let us know by filling in the following survey.

Thank you and look forward to seeing you at the Art Exhibition on Friday 8th February.

Art Exhibition Friday 8th February

You are invited to join your child’s class to visit our now annual Art Exhibition in school on Friday 8th February. Each child in each class will proudly present their work. Each class will also visit the exhibition and get a chance to see the work of the other classes.

To allow for the number of people and space, we will operate a timetable of visits. Please come along with your child’s class. Of course, you may have more than one child in school and wish to stay for that class visit too.

As in professional galleries, there will be a small admission charge of £2 which will go directly to school funds. The school fund is used to subsidise school purchases and travel. We thank you for your support. After we have enjoyed the children’s work the children will be able to bring these works home.

Fri Nursery will visit at 9am. Morning nursery children may visit with their parents at this time too.

P1 will visit at 9.30am

P2 will visit at 9.45am

P3 will visit at 10am

P4 will visit at 10.15am

P5 will visit at 11am

P6E will visit at 11.30am

P6H will visit at 11.45am

P7 will visit at 12 noon.

The exhibition will be in the downstairs corridor and the dining hall only. We would ask that prams and buggies are left outside the building to ensure our corridors are free flowing in the event of any emergency.

We hope you will enter into the spirit of our art in the community and sign in, in a creative way!

We are looking forward to seeing as many parents friends and family as possible.

Musselburgh Participatory Budgeting Your Voice Your Choice 2

This initiative provides the communities of Musselburgh, Old Craighall, Wallyford and Whitecraig the opportunity to put forward projects for funding which they feel would have an impact on POVERTY and REDUCING INEQUALITIES in the community.

To help the community understand exactly what Participatory Budgeting (PB) is we would like to share this short film.

The following link will take you directly to the Musselburgh Area partnership home page where you can view the film, the application process and the guidance.

First Response

Please find attached an updated leaflet promoting 1st Response which offers support to those in distress or in crisis.  They provide face-to-face support throughout East Lothian, Monday – Friday.

Please note that how people access this support has changed from a drop in service to an appointment system. An appointment can be made by phoning: 07966 526 452
