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.

South Of Scotland Transport Survey for Young People

The Workforce Mobility Project would like young people to complete a short five minute survey. This is a great opportunity to highlight the transport and digital barriers and challenges which impact you and your families.

This survey is for all young people, and is asking about all forms of transport, from walking, public transport, personal car use and all points in between. It is also important to hear the voices of young people who might otherwise be ignored, such as young people with disabilities, and their experience of transport in the area.

This year our end of year reports will be sent out digitally in a word document attachment. You will receive your child(ren)’s report(s) this week.

The following protocol for issuing the reports in this way has been approved by the council :                                                                                            You will receive an email in advance to advise of the document being sent, and with a request that you confirm that the email address is valid.                                                                                                                                              Once we receive confirmation we will submit the report. If we do not receive confirmation regarding the email address, we will try to contact you by phone to establish the correct email address.
