EMA Payment schedule 2017/18

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.

Please note;

  • 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.

2016-2017 Prelim Diet

On Wednesday 14th December all S4-S6 pupils were issued with their individual prelim timetables. A copy of the entire timetable is available to download here. It crucial that all pupils know the subject and level that they’re being presented for. Rooming and seating information will be available in the Front Hall after school on the day before each prelim.

Supported Study is available from a number of departments in the run up to the prelims and main exams should pupils wish to attend. This information is being collated centrally and will be available as soon as possible. Pupils should check with individual staff until the list is published.

Day of the Dead Themed Day

This year we are celebrating Day of the Dead – Día de Muertos!

Throughout the day staff across the school will be delivering Day of the Dead themed activities, pupils will be invited to dress up in theme with prizes for the best costumes and proceeds being donated to local charities.

The canteen has arranged for a special, one off menu which is advertised around the school and anyone purchasing items from the canteen on the day will be entered into a free prize raffle.

Photos will be available after the event on November 2nd.
