East Lothian Anti-bullying Policy Consultation

Following an initial consultation on how East Lothian should take forward anti-bullying, a draft East Lothian Anti-bullying Policy ‘Respect For All’ has been produced. We are now seeking parents’ views on the draft policy and would very much appreciate it if you shared your views before we finalise the policy. You can view and comment on the draft policy at

School Dress Code

There is an increasing number of girls wearing leggings/jeggings/black jeans to school. As you know, these are not permitted under our Dress Code as they are  deemed to be much too casual for school. Quite a few boys are also wearing jeans. Pupils are being reminded of the Dress Code in assemblies this week, and through a message in register folders. 

I appreciate that some of you may not agree with our approach, but the Dress Code was agreed by pupils, parents and staff following a consultation some years ago. It has been adapted since then with the addition of black shirts, as requested by the Pupil Council. I am seeking the support of all our parents in ensuring that every pupil follows the Dress Code.  That way, clothing ceases to be an issue and our conversations in school can focus on what really matters – learning!

Many thanks in anticipation of your support
