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.
Our Headteachers and school staff are currently progressing their plans to welcome children and young people back into school in August. To help us get this as right as we can for children and young people we would appreciate your views. We would be most grateful of you could complete this short survey regarding your child’s return to school in August by Monday 15 June 2020 4pm. Paper copies are available from your school by request.
All East Lothian Council schools, nurseries and specialist education provision will re-open tomorrow. 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.
We ask for all pupils to enter the school building upon arrival tomorrow morning. The gates open from 8.30am. The conditions of the playground will be assessed in the morning by Mrs Whitford and Mrs Hay.
Due to current weather conditions all East Lothian schools are closed today.
For information regarding tomorrow please regularly check our school Twitter page @TeamWBPS or the East Lothian Council website. Announcements are also made on Forth Radio. Our School Parent Council Facebook page is also sharing any tweets or information regarding school closures.
Mrs Whiteley-McPhee recently attended an art course at Edinburgh College of Art. The course
was based around the techniques of Henri Matisse and Mrs Whiteley-McPhee has shared her
experience of the course with all of the staff at West Barns.
