As of the 11th of January 2021 all pupils will be accessing lessons online through GLOW Teams.
At the minute this is planned for the whole of this week BUT the Scottish Government will review this decision in early January.
If any pupils do not have ICT to access this work please contact your PT PS from Wednesday 6th January onwards to have a discussion about how we can support this.
From the 6th January 2021 the school can be accessed by the children of keyworkers, with information on this having already been dispatched by NLC last night via Groupcall email.
We are also in the process of contacting other pupils to offer our support and access to the school.
In relation to the period of S5/6 Assessments, formerly known as “Prelims”, we will take a decision on these when we have more information from the Scottish Government about how things will pan out over the next few weeks. It would be folly of us to make a decision just now that might change in two to three weeks time.
Our key message just now to our young people is to plan for the assessments taking place when they were originally planned. We can assure you that we will be doing everything within our power to make sure that the young people of Coltness are not disadvantaged by any decisions being made in relation to COVID at a national level. I am aware that this is an anxious time for those involved at this level, and also S4, but the Government, SQA and the authority are aware of this and future mitigations I am sure will be put in place for the benefit of all young people involved.
