A Word from Miss Cook, Head Teacher

15 October 2021

It has been good to meet with S4 for assemblies this week and speak to them about our school vision, values and preparing for the prelims. We also spoke about how to look after their mental and physical health and where to seek support if they need this. There is lots of fantastic information about supporting your own and others’ mental health on this website.

Updated Covid-19 Guidance for schools should be coming out very shortly from the Scottish Government and I will communicate any updates to our mitigations at the school as soon as I can thereafter.


All the very best to our Business Support Administrator, Lisa Lambert, who leaves us today to take up a new role at Napier University.

S1 Reports

These were issued on Wednesday, 13 October, and reported on your young person’s achievement of a level, their effort, behaviour and home learning. In response to the survey that parents/carers and pupils completed in May, we have taken note of your feedback and changed our report to reflect this. Reports will now give one ‘positive progress comment’ and ‘two targets’ for pupils to help them focus on their next steps.  The Curriculum section of our website will detail the content of courses to allow parents/carers to be able to see the work being covered in each term rather than reports going in to this detail. Any feedback you have on the reports would be most welcome via the tear-off slips included in the reports.

Senior Phase Study Support

As well as our in-school study support sessions E-Sgoil is also offering evening study support sessions (which commenced on Monday 6 September 2021), targeted support for learners and, looking ahead, provision during the Easter holidays is already being planned.  A significant number of our young people have already signed up to the evening study support sessions but it would be good if we could encourage all senior phase pupils to do this. Spreading study across the year is more advantageous than last minute cramming for exams.
