East Lothian Play Policy
East Lothian Council has a Play Policy which was adopted at Education Committee in 2017 following a popular consultation with children, young people, parents and carers. Over 900 responses were received and the Policy was developed based upon the views expressed. It was drawn up by a steering group which included several members of ELPA who were able to feedback regularly at our meetings. The Play Policy can be downloaded at www.eastlothian.gov.uk/playpolicy
The Play Policy was successfully launched at Elphinstone Primary School at the end of August 2017, where the highlight was the pupils playing with loose parts during playtime.
ELPA is promoting the Play Policy through its Choose Play East Lothian! Film and postcards. #chooseplay
