Change of Timetable for current S2 pupils

Dear Parent/Carer,

As previously conveyed on our website, our current S2 pupils will be changing timetable as of Monday 18th May. Invitations for new Google classrooms should be arriving on Friday 15th May onwards and I would appreciate your support in ensuring that your son/daughter joins all of their S3 Classrooms.

Supported Learning pupils will, for the most part remain in the same Google Classrooms, which will be renamed to indicate that they are now S3. CDU pupils will be invited to join the new classrooms in relevant subjects or remain in re-named classrooms for some of their subjects. ASN teachers will be in communication with the pupils to explain any individual arrangements.

The work we are about to start will help to build the foundations for the National exams and curricular areas will post work on a specific day, every two weeks. I have attached the Learning Schedule for so it can be shared with parents and pupils.

A Learning Log, also attached, is issued electronically to every pupil in the Year Group classroom. This should be returned at the end of the two weeks and will show what work has been completed whilst also providing pupils with an opportunity to given feedback to staff on the work set.

Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions about our imminent timetable change, please feel free to email me directly.

Stay safe,

Mrs D Cassidy
