How to use the site

The Additional Support Needs Info Hub is designed for teachers to access information about pupils with additional support needs.  The site is split up into different categories - see the left hand side bar of this page - and within these categories there may be sub pages.  You are greatly encouraged to add in your resources and instructions to do this are below. Please don't be put off sharing useful information - if in any doubt about how or where to upload email dramsay@eastlothian.gov.uk to get help.
There is a discussion forum available in the section entitled 'Welcome!' Click on 'Ask a Question' and start a new discussion thread or add to an existing one.
How to upload a document

You can attach files within the attachments section at the bottom of any page or within a File Cabinet page. Choose which category you want to add your document into.  To attach a document to a standard page, click on the tab Add File, then Browse next to Attach a file, browse for the file, select it, and click Open. There is a limit of 20MB per file on uploads.

To attach documents to a File Cabinet, create a new File Cabinet page and upload your files there using folders as desired to organize the contents.

If you want to organize your attachments, you can go into the Attachment section of the Site Settings page, then move, rename, upload or delete your files. To do this:

  1. Click on the More Actions button.
  2. Select Manage Site from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click on Attachments in the side bar.

This will enable you to make any edits or changes that you wish to make to your uploaded files.
