Headteacher’s Update 15.01.21

Dear Parent/Carer,

Remote (online learning)

As the first week of formal remote learning ends, I wanted to reach out and let you know that we are working hard here to ensure that you have the resources available to enable your child to continue in their learning.

We are confident that all S4,S5 and S6 pupils can access work through their school managed Ipad and our teachers are setting a combination of ‘live’ lessons and tasks via Microsoft TEAMS that will enable your child  to work through their courses and email work back to their teachers. W/b 18th January  we will be ‘rolling out’ school managed Ipads to S3 pupils and by the end of next week we will have an updated timetable for their learning- please keep a ‘weather eye’ on email communications from the school regarding this. On Monday, I will be having a budget meeting to explore the possibility of acquiring school managed ipads for S1 and S2 pupils however in the meantime all S1 and S2 pupils should access the Home Learning Hub or alternatively you can collect additional learning packs from the school. There is also a wide range of additional resources here


We will ask you to complete a short survey next week that will inform us how we can be more responsive to support your child’s learning and it’s imperative that there is two way communication between yourselves and us so that we can continue to respond to the needs and challenges you face. In the meantime, if there is anything urgent you require to support your child’s learning please email us at


Best Wishes

D Young
