S3-S5 Option Information Evenings

Dear Parent,

Over the next few weeks, we will begin the process of option planning for S3-5 for session 2020-21. We will be working with young people in PSE lessons to plan their senior phase pathway. Recently, we have consulted with young people to develop an option choice sheet for each year group that should meet the needs of young people across the school. Option forms will be issued later this term and all young people will have the opportunity to meet with their Pupil Support Teacher to discuss their senior phase plan. Our SDS Careers Adviser, Gail Borland is also available for consultation with young people and Parents. Please contact your child’s pupil support teacher to arrange this.

S3 Option interviews – 29th January 2020
S4/5 Option interviews – 26th February 2020

Information regarding subject choice will be available on the school website. Information on recommended levels and current tracking information will be included in the tracking reports which will be issued this month for S3 and in February for S4/5.

To provide an overview of our current curriculum structure and the options process there will be a senior phase information night on Thursday 23rd January 2020 AT 6.30PM. Parents and young people are invited to attend the evening where there will be a short presentation from the Head Teacher and an opportunity to ask questions.

Should you have any concerns regarding the options process please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Yours faithfully

Lyndsay McRoberts
Head Teacher
