Lots of information was covered with all leavers in an assembly with Mrs Bain yesterday.
Timetable change, SQA arrangements and leaving arrangements are all different from any other year and we thank you for bearing with us as we navigate through this.
The main points are here for your information and reassurance.
- 8th June due to COVID and exceptional SQA circumstances
- allows more time for moderation and any required further assessments
Some pupils have to stay on until 4th June to complete assessments: teachers will advise individuals.
Provisional SQA grades may be subject to change after moderation between staff which may lead to further assessment.
Option a) S6 Students who have completed all assessments and anyone who has a start date with an employer next week may leave on Friday 28th May.
(Staff will have to sign leavers’ form. In order to do this, staff will have to be very clear before signing the form that assessments are all completed.)
Option b) Leavers’ day for everyone else is Friday 4th June.
Leavers’ forms should be collected from the School Office on the relevant week. (This week for option a and next week for option b.)
This form has been reopened till midnight TONIGHT. Please ensure you meet all the criteria before applying.
A letter has been sent to parents regarding Covid 19 arrangements in school, including the new regulations about wearing of masks which comes into effect on Monday 31st August.
Masks should be kept in a plastic bag/ similar when not being worn.
A clean mask should be brought each day.
Parents should get in touch with us at school if they think their child is exempt from wearing a mask so that we can inform the relevant staff.
This is another change that we will support young people with and we appreciate your support as always.
Did you know that you can contact Moray EPS as a parent during this COVID19 period?
Moray Educational Psychology Service know that school staff are working hard to provide quality information to parents to help their children’s wellbeing and education. As these are unusual and challenging times we would like to provide a wider service to families to help support this work. If you would welcome the opportunity to chat about any social, emotional or educational concerns about your child with our link Educational Psychologist, Kirsty MackIntosh, they can be contacted via email on Kirsty.MackIntosh@moray.gov.uk or a telephone message can be taken on 01343 550999. Parents/carers that already have, or have had, involvement with the service can, of course, make contact in the same way. It is helpful if any emails received contain a preferred phone number for follow up.
Please complete this short questionnaire to let us know how you are coping with home learning, how you feel about how we are communicating with you and setting work.
