This additional update is to confirm our preferred candidate for the post of DHT Curriculum. Subject to the required pre-employment checks, Mrs. Lynsey Stewart-Young will be joining the team.
Mrs Stewart-Young is an East Lothian resident and spent much of her early career here, before taking up promoted posts in both Midlothian and Edinburgh, most recently as a Depute Head Teacher. We will, I am sure, gain a great deal from her experiences in working with a range of local authorities.
As you will be aware, there have already been significant developments in aspects of our Curriculum, ensuring we have a timetable that works for young people, and can be realistically staffed. Therefore, ahead of the school opening, Mrs Stewart-Young will be focusing on her key role in supporting high quality learning, teaching and assessment. This will include working with all teaching and support staff to ensure consistency in delivering excellent learning experiences, with an absolute commitment to positive relationships between staff and young people in all faculties and individual classrooms.
Mrs Stewart-Young looks forward to joining East Lothian Council and meeting our new school community.
