As you may be aware, the Early Learning and Childcare Service Model for 2020 consultation Paper was launched by the Scottish Government on 29th March 2018 and will remain open for response until 29 June 2018.
East Lothian Council is putting together a response to the Scottish Government consultation and is keen to make sure its response takes account of the views of local people.
Yesterday, East Lothian Council launched their own Consultation exercise on the same subject, and the responses submitted will be collated and used to inform East Lothian Council’s formal response to the Scottish Government’s consultation. Our own consultation will close on 27th May 2018, and a link to this can be found below:
East Lothian are a year in from their Sports Clubs joining the Support from the Start Bursary Scheme offering free places to those in our community who can’t afford it. The majority of our sports clubs are offering free places as part of the scheme and some offering kit and equipment to further remove any financial barriers to partaking in sport.
A flyer is attached which gives more information on which clubs are offered- if you would like more information on how to apply for a free place at any of these clubs please ask at the school office.

We will hold our World Book Day activities tomorrow (Tuesday 6th March ). If the pupils had a costume organised for World Book Day they are welcome to wear this tomorrow but there is no obligation for any pupils to do this. The pupils will also have a story with milk and cookies during the day.
Schools and nurseries in East Lothian will re-open tomorrow (Monday 5th March) We look forward to welcoming the pupils back.
Due to adverse weather East Lothian have closed all schools and nurseries tomorrow (Friday 2nd March). Please continue to check East Lothian Council’s website for updates on the situation.
Hopefully we will see the pupils back to normal on Monday. Stay safe!
We would like to ask all parents/carers to check their child/ren’s heads at least once a week. Parental vigilance plays a vital role in keeping the spread of this problem under control.
We no longer can send letters to particular classes where parents have made us aware of an outbreak but can only continue to remind parents to check their child’s hair on a regular basis. If going uncheck it can easily spread throughout the family, as well as children continuing to be re-infected in their particular class/ stage.
I know treatment can be expensive , especially if you need to treat the whole family but I believe if you register with a pharmacist you can be issued with the correct treatment free of charge but please check this with your own GP or pharmacist.
Autism Awareness is a 2 hour session run by Simon Robinson from Barnardos’ Intensive Behaviour Support Service (BIBSS) that aims to improve the knowledge, confidence and resilience of parents, carers and professionals in working with autistic children and young people.
