Supported study aims to provide senior pupils with additional support with subject content, homework and preparation for course assessments, prelims and SQA exams.
The following is a timetable of current supported Study opportunities during lunchtimes and after school.
EXAM LEAVE ARRANGEMENTS FOR S4-S6 PUPILS FOR SESSION 2018/2019
I am writing with information about exam leave arrangements for our young people in S4, S5 and S6.
There are no formal examinations for courses at National 2, 3 and 4. These courses are assessed internally by teaching staff with marking subject to external moderation by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). All courses at National 5 (except PE) have formal external examinations. Higher and Advanced Higher courses in all subjects also have external examinations.
Young people in S4, S5 or S6 sitting external examinations will have a period of exam leave from, Monday 29 April to Friday 17 May inclusive. Young people will also be excused attending school the day before any examination which falls out with that period. This will give young people additional time to revise and prepare for their exams.
Any young person who wishes to attend school during the period of study leave is entitled to do so. School staff will be available to answer questions and provide support.
Pupils with no external examinations are expected to continue attending school and will be able to access a variety of learning experiences.
I hope this letter clarifies arrangements for the exam leave that will operate in Angus secondary schools this session. If you have any specific questions about exam leave arrangements, please contact the school in the first instance.
