We’re in the customer vote for a Tesco Community Grant. It’s a scheme which gives community projects like ours grants of up to £1,500.

Tesco customers will now vote in the Musselburgh store during July to September and will decide how much funding we get for the PL Breakfast Cafe, so please support us next time you shop at Tesco!

We will also be posting on social media about the Breakfast Café project. Even if you don’t shop at Tesco, can you help spread the word through your friends and family by sharing our posts and tweets? Every little helps!

Our breakfast café is managed day to day by Jonathan Sharples from the Pennypit Trust, he is supported by a whole team of wonderful staff from PL, volunteering their time, before school.

We continually need to raise funds to keep the breakfast café running, to ensure all our young people have access to a healthy, nutritious breakfast at the start of the school day. The funding we receive from the vote will go towards the cost of breakfast supplies.

A huge thank you to everyone who gives their time to help keep the Breakfast Café running at PL. We couldn’t do it without your help.

Draft revised School Session Dates 2021/22 Consultation

Dear parent/carer

New School Dates 21-22

Please find draft revised school session dates 2021/22 here. As part of East Lothian’s collaboration with neighbouring local authorities in preparing our draft school session dates for the three school sessions, 2022/23, 2023/24 and 2024/25, it has come to their attention that City of Edinburgh Council have made an amendment to their school session dates for next session, 2021/22.  As the practice in East Lothian is to align as much as possible with City of Edinburgh Council’s dates East Lothian have reviewed and amended our dates accordingly.  There are 2 changes to the revised draft dates as follows:

  • Schools will finish on Friday 17th December 2021 (instead of Thursday 23rd December 2021) and return on Wednesday 5th January 2022 (instead of Monday 10th January 2022)
  • Schools will close for the summer break on Friday 1st July 2022 (instead of Thursday 30th June 2022).

If you would like to comment on the revised draft school session dates please email

The closing date for comments is Friday 9th July 2021.

Best wishes,
