In East Ayrshire, we’re on a mission.

We’ve committed to delivering the best possible outcomes for children and young people in East Ayrshire.

Our communities are strong, safe and vibrant, benefitting from high quality services which are accessible, sustainable and fully focused on people’s needs. Education is a key driver to ensure that we continue to support our communities and invest in the future of East Ayrshire.

East Ayrshire is a place where every child, young person and family has access to opportunities and choices to help them enjoy a high quality of life.

Building for the future

Almost half of the Council’s Capital Investment Programme (£500m) is dedicated to building new schools, modernising buildings and delivering an educational infrastructure dedicated to learning excellence.

Our vision is a future where all children and young people have the best possible start in life; an education that fires their imagination and supports their ambition, inspiring them to succeed - and to ensure they have developed the skills for life, learning and work to maximise the potential of our communities.

Building the team

We’re transforming our Education Management structure with a continued focus on raising attainment, including a relentless focus on closing the poverty-related attainment gap, for all of our children and young people.

We have an Education Group structure that empowers Heads of Centres to collaborate across the authority and the South West Education Improvement Collaborative. These structures support a shared responsibility to create caring and supportive environments to help our young people achieve their true potential.

We are recruiting outstanding leaders at all levels to help deliver these aims.
