P          Complaint from Local Business

We received a complaint from the shop on the corner of School Road about poor behaviour and disrespect from school pupils. This has resulted in Police Officers visiting the school to discuss the concern. Be aware that the shop are now seeking for pupils to be charged for this anti-social behaviour and they have access to CCTV for identifying pupils involved. This concern will be discussed at upcoming pupil assemblies – however, I would strongly advise pupils to avoid this area if you cannot behave in a responsible and respectful manner or you will run the risk of getting a criminal record and further consequences.

P          EMA – S5/6

EMA application forms can be collected from Miss Lee 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 Miss Lee.

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 Miss Lee if you have any questions about EMA.
