Covid-19 Update 25/03/20

Wednesday 25th March 2020

A SQA related post, and FAQs document, tonight that builds on recent announcements and website updates.

Following the Scottish Government’s announcements, firstly that there would be no exams and secondly that no young person with SQA coursework to complete should attend school to do so, we have endeavoured to ensure we are communicating with all of our school community about what this means for our students.

Following yesterday’s SQA announcement, our teams are continuing to work on reviewing evidence for our students and considering the implications of factoring coursework, where appropriate, into this.

We know that this is a very frustrating and worrying time, consequently we are receiving a high volume of communications from our students and parents asking questions about the SQA’s 2020 accreditation process. We have prepared a FAQs document for your use, we will add to this as clearer direction and guidance from the SQA is available.  Please check the FAQs below before contacting the school,  it may help to answer your question(s).

Often our parents and students have questions and concerns that we cannot, currently, provide definitive answers to. But, please be assured that we are committed to making certain that all of our students’ hard work this session is rightly and fairly recognised.
