Attached is a letter from Vivienne Cross, Head of Education, which was sent out today. Please note that Friday 1st May is now an In-Service Training day to allow teaching staff in Moray secondary schools time to prepare for the early moving on of the timetable. Please note that this is not an extra day but the INSET planned for the 14th of May brought forward.
15th May is still an INSET day and 8th May is a public holiday so no scheduled classes, setting of work or communication with class teachers will be available on any of those days just as would be the case were we physically in school.
Letters outlining the moving on of classes into the new session’s ‘timetable’ from next Monday and choice of course outcomes will be sent home this week explaining how this will work. The rationale behind all this is to engage and motivate our learners and make the best use of the time created by the cancellation of SQA exams and exam leave. Students will be able to complete work still required to be done and make a start on some new level courses.
Rest assured that well-being and equity are very much at the heart of all our decisions. We don’t want anyone to be left out or left behind.
Please take care,
