From the 6th to the 16th April, there will be three Live Webinars per course. They will be delivering over 60 courses offering 3 webinars each, over 2 weeks. All the pupils who are already registered for e-Sgoil Study Support in the evenings will be included in the Team but will have to register for e-Sgoil Easter Study Programme. Webinars will use a ‘flipped learning’ approach. This means that young people will have had access to high quality, online resources prior to attending each webinar.
WEEK 1: 6TH – 9TH TH APRIL
- Start times are from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. each day.
- Subject Webinars will take place on Tuesday/Thursday or Wednesday/Friday e.g. Maths could be at 2.00 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday and French at 4.00 p.m. on Wednesday and Friday.
- e-Sgoil Easter study support webinars will be running as per the existing e-Sgoil evening webinar schedule. Additional webinars will be arranged to match week 1 provision.
- The focus for the webinars will be on helping pupils succeed in SQA assessments.
- Resources will be posted in the Webinar teams and they will either be SQA past papers or assessments as well as any relevant materials from West OS and the Supported Learning materials from NeLO.

On the back of East Ayrshire Council’s communication with you yesterday, I am writing today to give parents and pupils details of our soft start arrangements for week beginning Monday 10th August and to provide more general information for our full pupil return from week beginning Monday 17th August.
You can access the letter by clicking on either the Microsoft Word or PDF link below:
I appreciate that there is a lot of information in the letter and have tried to strike the balance between giving you enough information to have confidence in our arrangements for return and not overwhelming our pupils and parents. Please take the time to read the guidance from EAC and our letter today thoroughly and to visit the website link for catering arrangements hyperlinked in my letter.
Further communication will follow in the days and weeks to come as some of our arrangements are adapted and I urge you to please ensure you have downloaded the school app and selected the appropriate year group notifications.
Despite the difficult times we have faced and significant mitigations being undertaken to maximise staff and pupil wellbeing and safety, I am very excited to be welcoming our young people back into school.
Thank you again for your continued support,
I have written to pupils and parents this afternoon with an update ahead of SQA certification tomorrow. The update contains a good luck message, information on support available for pupils and guidance on the SQA appeals process. You can access the letter via the school app or by clicking on either the Word or PDF document links below:
Remember to visit our Twitter page to access more information from our partner agencies that will be on hand to offer pupils support from tomorrow.
Wishing you the best of luck tomorrow,
Following last night’s communication from East Ayrshire Council, I am happy to share with you Stewarton Academy’s model and arrangements for pupil return from August. You can click the links below to access my letter to parents and pupils, and a document outlining the detailed arrangements for pupil return in August.
- Letter from Mr Miller to parents and pupils – PDF
- Letter from Mr Miller to parents and pupils – Word doc
- Stewarton Academy August return arrangements – PDF
- Stewarton Academy August return arrangements – Word doc
I strongly encourage you to read all three documents linked in this message to gain a full understanding of our model for return, the rationale that underpins it and the issues to which we still await clarification.
The communications are lengthy and there is a lot of information to absorb but I hope the detail provided leaves you with a sense of clarity and confidence in our plans as we move forward.
I want to thank you for your overwhelming support over the last few months and to pay tribute to the work of my staff in getting us to this point with a model and offer I am proud of under the current circumstances.
I hope you and your family continue to be safe and well as we head into a much-needed weekend.
With two school weeks remaining, the curriculum grids below will be the final ones we publish before the summer holidays to ensure that pupils have time to get feedback on their work from teachers during the final week of term. As a result, we have extended the deadline for pupils to complete and submit this work to Wednesday, 24th June.
Further updates will follow at the end of this week and beginning of next week about plans for return in August. I also look forward to meeting with the Parent Council on Tuesday and will share with all parents the update I provide for them via the website and app.
You have been nothing short of fantastic in your support of us throughout this school closure period and I could not be more appreciative. I also want to re-iterate how proud I am of the staff for their work and of the pupils for their engagement under such testing circumstances.
Have a good week, and take care,
I have written to all Primary 7 parents this afternoon ahead of their children joining us as our new S1 cohort in August. Some of the detail may be pertinent or of interest to our current parent body, and you can access a copy of the letter at the following link:
