Summary of 2020 Curriculum Structure & Feedback from Information Evening

Summary of 2020 Curriculum Structure, with Feedback from Information Evening

Having consulted with pupils, parents and teachers, and having looked outward at the curriculum structures of a range of successful schools, we have now agreed the S1 to S6 structure for our new curriculum from June 2020. This is just the beginning of our work on curriculum, as it simply lays out the number of 50 minute periods allocated to each area of the curriculum in each year. We will work during school session 2019-20 on planning to deliver the curriculum in 50 minute periods.

Parents and carers attended an information evening earlier on 30 May, at which we talked through the proposals for the new senior-phase (S4 to S6) curriculum structure, and sought feedback. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and the small number of concerns expressed will help us to ensure we manage the change effectively. Feedback regarding the East Lothian Common School Day was more mixed, but again we will reflect on the concerns in order to mitigate any possible issues. We greatly appreciate the support of the parents and carers who were able to attend.

Additional In-Service Days for Session 2019-20

As part of the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers’ pay negotiations, agreement was reached that two additional in-service days would be granted during schools session 2019/20. Following discussion with the Primary Head Teacher Executive, Secondary Head Teachers, Professional Associations and also with SEIC local authority representatives, it has been agreed that the two additional dates will be as follows:

The first additional day will be Monday 21 October 2019. This date is already in our East Lothian calendar as a local in-service day so this will be moved to Tuesday 22 October 2019, thereby resulting in two consecutive In-service days. The second additional day will be Tuesday 7 January 2020.

Please note an amended school session dates calendar will be issued in due course to reflect these additional days. This will also be posted on the Council website.
