SQA Results/Appeals

We hope that our Senior Phase pupils are pleased with their SQA results. They have worked hard and deserve to be proud of their achievements.

SQA has provided all candidates with an information booklet about the appeals process:

Appeals 2022 information booklet

If any candidate received a grade lower than the estimate that was submitted by their teacher, they may request an appeal to be submitted.

Pupils should speak to their teacher about this on their return to school or contact the school immediately if it is a priority appeal that needs to be submitted before Tuesday 16th August.

School Uniform

Dear Parent/Carer,

A reminder of the unirom letter sent last week.

With the current school year drawing to a close, I know that many families will already be thinking about school uniform for next year.  School uniform is important as it helps promote equity, engenders a sense of belonging and a work ethic, and helps us maintain school security. I am providing some information and advice that will, I hope, be helpful.  I am eager that we maintain high standards of dress at school, as I know you are too.

A reminder that our school uniform consists of the following:
 

Acceptable uniform Unacceptable uniform
Black blazer
School tie
White shirt
Black skirt/trousers
Plain black jumper/cardigan
School hoodie or zipper (must have school badge)
Black shoes
See attached for visual display
 
Any clothing not in school colours
Jumpers with name of manufacturer displayed prominently
Jumpers displaying large logos
Hooded tops (other than standard uniform ‘hoodie’)
Jeans, especially ripped jeans
Leggings
Sports wear
Leather/leather effect waistcoats
Tracksuit trousers or tops
See attached for visual display

In consultation with our pupils, we are introducing a school ‘hoodie’ and school zipper top for next session (see above attachments for images). Only school hoodies should be worn to school – any other types of hooded top are not permitted.

Please note that blazers, zippers and hoodies can be purchased from BE Uniforms on line at https://www.border-embroideries.co.uk/schools/eastbank-academy.html or in store at 35A Argyle St, Glasgow G2 8AH.  PE Kit and school ties can be purchased in school.  Items such as trousers, shirts, jumpers and cardigans can be purchased from most high street retailers and many large supermarkets.

Please be mindful of these requirements when purchasing school uniform items for next session.  I thank you for your ongoing support in maintaining a high standard of attire at Eastbank Academy.

Yours faithfully,


Jonathan Graham
Head Teacher
