A Word from Miss Cook, Head Teacher

17 January 2020

Happy New Year and another fulfilling one for all at Knox Academy and our community. This term we will start our series of assemblies looking at our new school vision, "Always to choose kindness and create a respectful environment where staff and pupils can inspire each other to achieve their goals and become life-long learners."  We will also link this to our school values of Ambition, Respect and Community (ARC) and our further theme for this year, RESILIENCE. It would be good if parents/carers could support the school in discussing our vision and values with your young person too.

I would also like to update parents/carers on the VE Day Consultation that took place in November 2019. As a result of this, East Lothian Council has taken the decision to allocate 8 May 2020 as an additional day's leave in order to celebrate the 75th Anniversary Celebrations. Details of this can be found in a letter from East Lothian Council. Please note, on Monday 4 May (our other holiday) both Higher and Advanced Higher English exams are on this day and pupils who are sitting these exams must attend school.

Joan Hunter retired as our catering assistant after 29 years at Knox Academy. We will miss her greatly.

Judy Hadden, one of our Learning Assistants at Meadowpark also leaves us next Friday to take up a post with the NHS.

Donna Connell, a Learning Assistant at Knox Academy, leaves on Friday to take up a Youth Worker /Mentoring post based at Leith Academy.

Emma Maguire, Business Support Administrator, leaves Knox Academy after 8 years to take up a role in the private sector.

Pamela MacGregor, Science Technician, retired at the end of term after 15 years’ service at Knox Academy.

Whether retirement or moving on to pastures new, I would like to wish all the aforementioned staff very best wishes for their future from all at Knox Academy.
