Here are updates regarding Covid-19 and wider school:
The exams taking place over the next six weeks are a chance for all learners to demonstrate their hard work, skills and knowledge.
Please continue to follow public health guidance, including during the exam period.
The Scottish Government’s current public health guidance remains in place up to and including 30 April. This asks individuals to self-isolate if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID and to book a PCR test.
However, as per the Test and Protect Transition Plan published on 15 March 2022, public health guidance is set to change in Scotland from 1 May.
As set out on the Public Health Scotland website, this new guidance will be published on NHS Inform on 1 May and will broadly align with the current UKHSA ‘Stay at Home’ advice that asks children and young people to stay at home if they have a high temperature and feel unwell.
It is really important that you speak to the school/college if you cannot attend the exam for any reason so that you get the advice and support you need on next steps.
More information can be found in ‘Your Exams 2022’ on the SQA website.
