George from Gardening Club, and his little brother, have been getting stuck in to some hard graft with their dad - a professional gardener (who built us a raised bed last year 😁) - and transformed their garden into a football pitch! Two very happy boys 😀


They sound delicious!

Yellow flowers shine with optimism; take time to reflect today and notice the beauty of nature

What a fantastic piece of Technology work from Callum on ‘making a mechanical toy from scratch.’ Great to see parents getting involved too.

Plant sunflowers now for a summer display. You could sow straight into the ground now - in a sunny spot. Protect the seedlings by placing the top of a plastic bottle over them at night. Support with a cane when tall. Seedheads make a tasty snack for birds too

Grow marigolds next to tomatoes as companion plants: the marigolds are said to keep away whitefly and they will attract bees for pollination. Add basil too for better-flavoured tomatoes.


Retweeted From RBA School Gardening

Are these straggly, wrinkled things that arrived in the post really going to grow into scrumptious strawberries?! Yes, they are! Buying bareroot strawberries is so much cheaper. Soak roots for 20 mins and then plant out. Keep the faith 🍓🍰


Missing so many things


Children or not, our corridors are never silent. Whose missing these two?


Inspiring future gardeners

Make a wildlife pond by placing an old washing up bowl into a hole in the ground, put a layer of gravel at the bottom, add rocks, bricks or logs as stepping stones for creatures, fill with rain water and put in oxygenating plants. Soften the edges with stones and plants.


Another beautiful day and how lovely to see 7 newly hatched goslings swimming with their parents in Barclay Park lake. Just out for their daily stroll too.

Parent Information

At Robert Barclay Academy we believe that it is very important to us that we work closely in partnership with parents and carers, and communication between home and school is key.

EduLink One

Robert Barclay Academy uses a portal called EduLink One which provides a convenient and accessible solution for the school to communicate with parents on all aspects of school life and also allows parents to access all information about their child in one place.  


What Can EduLink One Do?

Some of the EduLink One features which parents may find useful are listed below:

  • Absence Reporting - Parents can easily report their child absent from school due to illness. They will also be notified via email if their child is absent from school.
  • Account Info - This screen will allow parents to see general information that we hold about their child.
  • Achievement - Will show parents any achievements awarded to their child.
  • Attendance - Parents will be able to view statutory attendance statistics for their child.
  • Behaviour - This will give parents access to the behaviour records for their child.
  • Calendar - This will be populated with upcoming events, parents’ evening dates and school holidays. If a dot is showing under a date, it means there are one or more events happening that day. Click the date to find out more information.
  • Catering – This screen links to ParentPay accounts, it will let parents know what their child has chosen to eat and the balance on their account.  
  • Contacts - This screen will show parents the contact information we hold on file for them.
  • Documents – In this section parents can find the annual school report for their child.
  • Exams - This will give parents information about any exams their child may be taking. An exam timetable as well as exam entries are displayed.
  • Forms – On occasion we will ask parents to complete reply slips through EduLink One, these are found in the forms section.
  • Homework - The homework screen allows parents to see all of the homework that has been set for their child. The screen also allows parents to swipe through to see homework that has been completed.
  • Messaging - We now communicate with parents via email and push notifications to the app. Parents will receive instant paperless communications into the EduLink One communicator tool as well as to their email inbox. Parents can also use EduLink One to contact their child’s teachers.
  • Timetable - This gives parents a view of their child’s current timetable and will be kept up to date with any changes of teachers, groups or rooms as they happen. 
  • Update Information – Parents can access and edit their contact details and their child’s information and consents, keeping the school up to date with any changes. (Note: This data can be accessed by any parent with Parental Responsibility and an EduLink One log-in).
