Tell us your views

The council is sharing detailed information on its school buildings with a new website giving a full picture of its estate at individual school, cluster and East Lothian level.

The website – www.eastlothian.gov.uk/ler – brings together information on the condition, suitability and capacity of existing schools and the council is keen to hear the views of families, communities and learners.

This is part of the development of a Learning Estate Investment Plan for East Lothian. The plan will set out the council’s investment priorities for its schools to make sure that all facilities support high quality teaching and learning equally across the county, and to outline the investment needed for this to happen. It will also consider how school buildings support community use.

The feedback will be analysed alongside the results of the online questionnaire that was held in February and presented at a future council meeting. For more information, including dates of event in your area and a link to the questionnaire, visit www.eastlothian.gov.uk/ler

The pre-consultation will close on 10 December 2021.

EY apprenticeship programme opportunities in Edinburgh

EY is currently recruiting two analysts, based in Edinburgh, for its EY Apprenticeship programme. The programme is aimed at school leavers; it provides a great opportunity with a multinational firm in a busy Edinburgh team helping to restructure solvent groups and companies.  The successful candidates would gain professional experience in the workplace and be mentored to work through their professional qualification through ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountant Scotland).  Once completed, they could expect to be a qualified Chartered Accountant in 4.5 years, earning a good salary while training.

The application process/assessment is available online with case studies, tips and information available. The interview process would be held via video to take account of current restrictions.

If you require further information please email the school and someone will call you back.

Winter 2019/20 Respiratory Illness

Key advice for parents and carers
In the home the risk of catching or spreading flu/cold like illness can be reduced by:
• Regular hand washing with liquid soap and running water
• Covering nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing
• Using a disposable paper tissue, disposed off immediately after use.
• You can teach your child to sneeze into the ‘crook’ of their arm rather than their hands, if they don’t have a tissue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQINuSTP1jI
• Good general cleaning of surface that everyone touches often e.g. TV remote, light switches, door handles, toilet flushes and tap heads.
