Subject Options Update

Our school Options Choice booklets have been uploaded to Pupil Engagement section of our website. They will be posted in pupils’ PSE Google Classrooms on Monday. This will allow our pupils to begin considering choices for 2021/22 as they transition into the next stage of their learning journey. More details will follow with regards to timelines and plans to provide as much ‘remote’ support to our S2-S5 pupils in this process. In the meantime, the booklets will provide all relevant infomation about subject course content and pathways and we would recommend pupils begin looking through this in preparation for the informed choices they will make later this term.

Remote Learning Guide

I hope our pupils are now starting to settle into their own routines of remote learning as the first set of work from their teachers is now posted on their Classrooms.
To coincide with the subject work now being made available I have attached a link to an information document that is designed to support our pupils through this process, but also as a guide for you to know what pupils should expect over the next few weeks. Robert Stewart

Google Classroom Video Guide

Our school has put together a short video presentation about Google Classroom.   In these times of uncertainty, we are keen to do everything we can to try to ensure all our pupils have access to their Google Classrooms. The video explains how to access the app, find out what work needs to be submitted and how to go about submitting the work.  Please click on the link below to watch the video.  I hope you find it useful. If you do have any further questions, please get in touch with your child’s pupil support teacher.
