Farewell for now and take care!

We would like to wish all of our pupils, parents/carers, extended families and staff a fond farewell for now!

The best of luck to our P7 Leavers – we believe in you and trust that you will take forward all of the learning and values from all of your years at primary school.

We hope everyone takes care over the summer break and we cannot wait to see you all in August!

Best Wishes

Mrs Cross and Ms Dougan x

P7/S1 Transition – update from the Robert Burns Academy

Please find below information received today from the Robert Burns Academy staff:

P7 Contact Information for The Robert Burns Academy

 By now you will hopefully have received a letter from The Robert Burns Academy with details of your child’s class, Depute Head and Guidance Teacher.

 We are aware of a small admin error with the contact details provided on this letter. If you have any enquires please use our new email address which is Robert.BurnsAcad@east-ayrshire.gov.uk

 The Cumnock Academy and Auchinleck Academy email inboxes are still being monitored over the summer for anyone who has already made contact this way.

 Our new school blog is now live and has been updated with videos for our new S1 from each department. It can be found at:


 We would encourage you to monitor our school blog for any further updates including transport arrangements. Our S1s will all be joining us at Cumnock Academy on Wednesday 12th August, we will direct them to their allocated classrooms as they arrive at school and there will be plenty of staff on hand to assist with this. On their first day we will have a special programme of lessons prepared to answer any question they have about the arrangements in the school.


Internet Safety

We are all using IT much more than before and it is essential that we stay safe online.

Family Discussion Time Again – racial equality protests

Following the recent events surrounding the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, we thought it would be beneficial for the children to recap on some of the learning we covered at assemblies during Black History month in January. We covered topics during the whole month and recapped on topics that we had previously covered over the year that linked. At the bottom of the post is our usual ‘Family Discussion’ article.

Rosa Parks:


Martin Luther King


Barack Obama
