eSgoil's Gaelic Medium Primary staff are currently delivering a specialist programme into Primary Schools across Scotland. The provision is called Misneachd (Confidence). To determine who is eligible to take part, teachers across Scotland identify pupils who they feel would benefit from a more intense period of 1-2-1 input, or small group interaction, with a specialist teacher. The main areas identified as showing significant regression, have been listening and speaking skills, and this has become the main focus of the project for 2021/22, although our staff are happy to help with any curricular areas. Teachers work closely with the child's class teacher to identify what specific need the child has. e-Sgoil staff then develop and deliver content suitable to target these needs. Sessions are 30 minutes long, delivered through Teams and are specific to the needs of the children in each group. If you would like any of your pupils to take part, please register your interest here.

Discover With Dug – an interactive approach for our youngest learners
We know that the best online learning for young children encourages real-life play, movement, songs, stories, dance and interactions and experiences – especially outdoors. Dug’s Discovery Den has been developed in partnership with Education Scotland to offer children across the early level of early learning and childcare and primary school an interactive collection of clicks to inspire further learning and exploration beyond the screen.
Dug’s Discovery Den presents an outdoor interactive and continually evolving virtual learning space. The space reflects the young learner’s world and interests by revealing different activities and new learning discoveries as we move through the seasons of the year.
As we explore and further develop this approach we would love to hear your feedback. Below you will find pilot sites in Gaelic and in English, and a form for you to add your comments and suggestions.
