Welcome back to 2018! Christmas seems like a distant memory, but I hope you had a wonderful time with your children over the festive holiday.
We are now back in full swing, even if the weather is trying its best to disrupt us! This term we have already had our S2 parents’ reporting and information evening, and more will follow in the coming weeks.

Scottish Government has collated attainment data from schools across Scotland. This data shows attainment at the end of P1, P4, P7 and S3 based on teacher’s judgements, supported by moderation. The data can be accessed here. On the page, you can select the latest year (2016/17), the local authority (Perth and Kinross) and the school (St John’s RC Academy).
In future years, teacher’s judgements will be supported by the Scottish National Standardised Assessments. Parents and Carers can find out more about these assessments and how teachers assess progress here. Read more
