Dear colleague

Welcome to the start of term 4, and another edition of our ESA News.

You might have noticed that Scootle has recently undergone a face-lift. Not only does the website look a bit different, but some additional features and tools have now been added, to enhance your overall experience.

Scootle Update

The new-look home page features an easy to find search bar, so you can dive right in and find what you are looking for on a particular topic, keyword or Curriculum code.

Scootle Homepage

Scroll down the page and you will find a handy video that highlights all the new features and additions to the website.


Bookmarks provide a simple way for you to mark resources that you would like to come back to. Simply click on the bookmark icon next to the relevant resource, turning the icon green. If you change your mind, you can click on the bookmark icon again, to remove it from your collection.
