Are you who they’re looking for?
We urgently need more people to take the plunge and find out about fostering with East Lothian Council.
East Lothian Council’s Education and Children’s Services spokesperson Councillor Shamin Akhtar says:
‘We have children and young people who need foster carers urgently. The demand is always growing and we need more people to come forward very soon and give their love and support to some vulnerable children and young people who really, really need them.
‘As you know, we set great store in East Lothian in keeping our looked-after children in or very close to East Lothian, so that very vulnerable children don’t have to change schools or lose touch with their friends and wider families. Not every fostering agency thinks this is important but we do – we really see the value in not sending children far away from everyone and everything they know. So, I’d just like to say how grateful I am to all our current foster carers for choosing to Foster East Lothian and for the fantastic job they do – they make a difference every day. I hope that there will be a number of people reading this article now who will also be able to make that difference and be the ones that our children so desperately need.’
School and nursery to re-open tomorrow Monday 5th March. Please ensure that all children enter the main door of the school building on arrival. All children can gather in the main gym hall before being dismissed to class. Please read the following information which contains advice from east Lothian council.
Schools and Nurseries
All East Lothian Council schools, nurseries and specialist education provision will re-open tomorrow (Monday).
We are working closely with providers who transport pupils from more isolated rural areas (outwith towns and villages) to and from our schools. Transport providers will contact parents directly if there are any difficulties collecting pupils from these locations due to road conditions.
There has been a huge amount of effort by our teams to clear snow from pathways – thanks to parents and residents for their assistance with this. Please be aware of surface conditions given the low temperature. Ensure children walking to school have appropriate footwear and are dressed to the conditions. In the interests of the safety, children and young people should go straight into the school building on arrival.
