A Word from Miss Cook, Head Teacher

23 May 2019

The SQA exams are all but a week from completion and our young people have reported fair papers and hopefully this will be reflected in the grades they will receive in August.


A warm welcome to Charlotte Todd, our new Librarian who started with us this week.

We are also currently advertising for a Senior Business Support Assistant (permanent, part-time 14 hours).

The school has been allocated probationers in Drama, Chemistry, Biology and History for session 2019-20

Common School Day

Letters have been issued this week and sent home via email for those in S4/5 (or posted if we don’t have your email so please do send your email to us – see below). This details all the timings for each school day and bus/taxi times for those travelling from further afield. This letter can also be viewed on the website and Twitter.

School Improvement Planning 2019-20

We have started planning the next steps in our improvement journey next year and for the 3-5 years beyond.  As you will be aware, the school invested a lot of time in session 2017-18 looking at the school values and consulting widely on these.  After this period of consultation our school values are Ambition, Respect and Community. We have focused on Respect this session and next session we will be moving forward with linking all three values through our classroom practice and the day to day life of all the school and in the wider community.  Alongside this we need to develop our school vision and again, I would like to engage all of our stakeholders in doing this; pupils, parents/carers, staff, community partners and our Cluster Primary school. This is important so we have an overall vision for now and the coming years for all who will attend Knox Academy. In the next few days I will be sending out a link to this survey by text and/or email and it would be great if parents/carers could complete this to help with the development of our vision so it really is us all involved in shaping this. Thank you in advance for your participation in this.  The survey will remain open for two weeks and should take a maximum of five minutes to complete.

The other aspects we will be focusing on as a school will be high quality learning, teaching and assessment and consistency of learners’ experiences; further development of digital skills for staff and pupils;  positive relationships; leadership...
