We’re delighted to announce that we’ll once again be taking part in the BBC School Report in 2018. More information will be available nearer the time and our full News Report will be available here on News Day.
The payment schedule shows the dates that EMA payments should reach pupils’ bank accounts and which weeks are covered by those payments. The full schedule can be downloaded by clicking here.
- Pupils will not start to receive payments until their application has been processed and they have received an acceptance letter from South Lanarkshire Council. (Application forms are available in the school office)
- All S5/6 pupils should have completed a learning contract the induction days in May/June, which also acts as their EMA learning agreement.
- Please note that pupils will not receive an EMA payment for a week in which they have an unexplained absence or unacceptable number of lates. If a pupil is absent for more than a week please submit a medical certificate or doctor’s letter to their Pupil Support teacher.
- If there is an issue with any EMA payments, pupils have been asked to speak their Pupil Support teacher in the first instance, who will check attendance for the relevant weeks.
Calling all parents of senior pupils, or former pupils.
The English Department would like encourage the reuse of old texts which may no longer be required by pupils after they have finished their course and/or exams.
This will hopefully provide a bank of books that can be used by pupils the following year. For example, if your S5 child bought a copy of Romeo and Juliet last session it can be reused this session. There is a box in the school office where books can be handed in.
Thanks in advance!
As the name implies, this service runs after candidates have received their certificates. If the school is concerned by a candidate’s result, we can request a clerical check and/or a marking review of the exam paper. There is no consideration given to alternative evidence in this service. We cannot submit alternative evidence of candidate performance to justify any concerns and no such evidence will be considered by SQA in making a determination. The check/review can lead to a change of grade either up or down.
The timeline of events that we must adhere to can be found here. Please contact Mr Heeps if you have any further questions regarding this service.
