Rise in Asthma Attacks
Did you know there is a rise in Asthma Attacks in August when pupils go back to school after their summer holidays?
Each year we see an increase in asthma attacks in children when they return to school which often result in admission to hospital.
Check out our top tips to try and avoid this happening.
Remember, asthma attacks are serious and you need to get help day or night if your child is not responding to their blue inhaler.

Please find attached a link to the Parental Engagement Strategy 2017 evaluation survey. We are seeking responses to help us to evaluate the impact of the six strands of the strategy for schools, parent council members and the wider parent forum. The full Strategy document is available at https://www.eastlothian.gov.uk/downloads/download/12712/parental_engagement_strategy
This survey http://links.edubuzz.org/pestrategysurveyforparents is for completion by your Parent Forum and I would ask that the link is shared via Groupcall with all parents and is placed on your school website as soon as possible.
The survey will be open for completion until Friday 22nd February, 2019. Parents only need to complete one survey if they have multiple children at your school, but will need to complete more than one survey for children at different schools. The survey results will be collated on a school basis which will be shared with the HT and Chair of the Parent Council to support any actions arising shortly after the closure of the surveys.
