SQA Reassurance

Dear senior students and families,

SQA issued a statement regarding coursework on 24/3/20 (link below). I can confirm that there is no update on exactly how  they will determine young people’s grades.


School is closed for the holidays so please do not contact teachers regarding estimate grades as they may not see this. Furthermore, teachers have been advised not to give these at the moment until we have further guidance from SQA. We have to get this right and cannot give out information until we get the right information and guidance from SQA.

Please don’t increase your anxiety by sending messages to us which cannot be answered.

This is new for all of us and we all need to be patient. No matter how difficult that is, there’s nothing else for it.

We will update you as soon as we have any more information.

Take care

Mrs Bain
