Statement from UCAS
The admissions timetable will run similarly to previous years, and we expect all students will be awarded a calculated grade for any exam they were entered for, with some variations across the UK, subject to confirmation from awarding bodies.
As we are aware this will start to trigger a lot of questions from students, we have published updates on and will be emailing affected applicants to explain what this means for them. In the meantime, please do not to rush into making any decisions, and carefully consider any unconditional offers.
Once further information about the process of providing and calculating grades is announced, specific guidance for each qualification we be shared. Again, I want to reassure you that UCAS will endeavour to do everything possible to support teachers and students as best as we can


Message from the Rector –

Dear Parents/ Carers

Thank you for your continuing patience at this difficult and ever changing time. Updated information received on Sunday 22nd by the First Minister, will mean that there will be no seniors in school to complete coursework over the next few weeks. Where possible staff will work with pupils remotely on any SQA coursework that can be completed out of school. At this point in time, we are awaiting advice from the SQA on next steps. It will not be possible to answer individual queries on this matter until we receive this advice. Pupils and parents will be contacted with any updates when I receive with regards to SQA matters.

As stated in Friday’s update the canteen will be open from 12pm until 1pm for collection of free school meals.

Where capacity allows childcare will be made available in the first instance for category 1 key workers as a priority. If we are able to, we will then look at category 2 and 3 key workers. When you take your young person into school, you will be required to complete a registration form and take ID with you for both key worker parents.

As stated by the First Minister yesterday, these arrangements have been put in place to protect us all, and if at all possible your child should remain at home.

Staff are continuing to work on resources remotely, and I would welcome your patience and understanding that it may take time for all classes at all levels to receive work across all subjects. Pupils should not come into school to pick up materials as we are trying to minimise unnecessary contact.

In the meantime, I hope that you and your young people are staying healthy.

Kind regards,

Ms Menzies
