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.

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


AGM tomorrow night – all welcome


The date of the next LPP meeting is tomorrow, Wednesday 5th December at 6.30pm.  We hope to see as many of you there as possible.  We have nominations for Chairperson and Vice Chairperson so no-one will be hoodwinked into a job unless you want one 😃

We only had 5 parents at the last meeting and that just isn’t enough to run a meeting or pass a vote.  Please, please come along if you can or the LPP might disappear completely!

Free NYCoS Singing lessons P3-7

The National Youth Choir of Scotland (NYCoS) and East Lothian Council are delighted to be able to offer a full term of FREE singing sessions for all children in P3 to P7 local authority schools.

There are six venues to choose from and we have choices on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays. There will be a joint concert at The Brunton in April to mark the end of the project.

All details are in this leaflet. Your child should also receive a paper copy in their school bag at some point between October and the end of this term.

In addition, all P3 children will receive a taster session during school time.

For more information and with any questions contact Charlotte McMillan (Email: cmcmillan@eastlothian.gov.uk Tel: 0131 653 5252).

Booking is online, via this link and must be done BEFORE Tuesday 18th December otherwise a place will not be guaranteed.


SchoolPay drop in session this Friday

For all those parents who haven’t yet registered with our new online payment system, we will be holding two drop-in sessions this Friday, 23rd November. Please come along after drop-off (9-10am), or before pick-up (11.30-12.30pm).  We really hope to see you there – East Lothian Council are asking for parents to log in, pre-order lunches, and make school payments in this way. It’s easy once you’ve registered!  We reissued letters this week to all parents who have not yet registered.  Those letters contain your unique code, so please bring that along if you can.

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. 

More information can be found, along with an online survey, on the Consultation Hub by following the link below:
