P          SQA Exams and Leavers’ Forms

Well done to all Senior Phase students who have now completed their SQA exams.   Any student who still has coursework to complete must ensure this is completed as soon as possible – please check with your teacher if you are unsure! If you are leaving school, please collect your leaver’s form from the school office and ask your teachers to confirm that you have completed all coursework and returned all books.  Your completed leaver’s form should then be returned to Mr Gray.

P          Blazer Exchange

We would love to receive donations of any unwanted items of school uniform, particularly school blazers, so that we can provide a ‘blazer exchange’. When we have sufficient stock, we hope to offer students the opportunity to exchange their blazer for a new size.  If we don’t have your size available, a token would be given meantime.  Please note: It would be helpful if blazers were washed before they are donated so that we can arrange the exchange quickly.

P          EMA – S5/6

EMA application forms can be collected from the School Office or downloaded from the South Lanarkshire Council website. On the Council website, click on ‘Education and Learning’, then ‘Secondary School Information’, then ‘Education Maintenance Allowance’.  If you need any help with this, please see Mr Gray or your Pupil Support Teacher.

It is your responsibility to complete and send the application form.

When you receive an award letter with your EMA number on it, bring this to Miss Lee who will then issue a copy of the Learning Agreement to be signed by your teachers and Parent/Guardian.  You should then return the completed Learning Agreement to Miss Lee and the school office will then process your EMA. 

Only when you have completed all of the above will the payment process begin.  Please see Mr Gray if you have any questions about EMA.
