Midlothian Council Statement

Sunday 22nd March 2020

Midlothian Council have asked each school to put the following statement on their website.

We have just been informed, Sunday 22 March 2020, by John Swinney, Depute First Minister of updated advice to all local authorities in relation to S4-S6 pupils. As a result of this advice, S4-S6 pupils should NOT go into school for any reason. An exception, however, is vulnerable S4-S6 pupils who access Complex Needs Provision. They should follow individual arrangements already in place for them with their school.

Instead, where possible, S4-S6 pupils, should finish their course work at home and schools will make arrangements to provide further guidance and support to S4-S6 pupils in due course. Schools, as of tomorrow, Monday 23 March 2020, will be working with staff to plan this support.

 Further details will be coming from the SQA about how pupils’ qualifications and achievements will be graded in the light of this latest decision announced today by Deputy First Minister, John Swinney.
