09 December 2020 – Secondary S4-6
Dear Parents and Carers
Yesterday the Depute First Minister, Mr John Swinney, announced that all SQA qualifications will be assessed using an Alternative Certification Model and not through exams in 2021. I have prepared a summary of what this means for our S4-6 pupils, which is below.
Please be assured that our teachers are committed to supporting your child to achieve their very best in their qualifications. Please encourage your child to work hard, complete homework, prepare for assessments, and attend study support whenever possible. This is a challenging year for all our senior pupils. While we will do all we can to support them, they have the tough job of producing high quality evidence of learning so that they can achieve the level of awards they are capable of achieving.
Thank you for your ongoing support of our work – it is always appreciated.
With every good wish,
Seán P Hagney
Headteacher and Campus Leader
