Results and certificates to candidates

Candidates will receive their certificates by first class post on Tuesday 8 August 2017.Candidates who have signed up to MySQA will also receive an email or text from 8am that day.

Candidates can register for MySQA at www.mysqa.org.uk  To do this, they will need their Scottish Candidate Number and an e-mail address.  To receive their results by text or e-mail, candidates must register by 5pm on Wednesday 19 July 2017.

If you or your child have any queries about MySQA, please e-mail mysqa@mysqa.org.uk

In August, the school’s first priority will be to manage the priority marking review requests.  This will be in support of pupils who have conditional university places dependant on specific results.  Any pupil in this situation should meet their Principal Teacher of Guidance P1 on Tuesday 15 August.

They will consider where pupil achievement is “markedly at odds with the totality of assessment evidence gathered during the year” e.g. is 2 grades below their estimate grade?  Only pupils who fall into that category will be considered for a Post Results Service Request.

Thereafter, Principal Teachers will review all other results in the way outlined above.  If you are concerned about any result, please discuss first with your Principal Teacher of Guidance who will advise appropriately.

Mrs McCarthy will be in school on Tuesday 8 August if any pupil/parent wishes to discuss results.

Further support/advice has been shared by SQA and is outlined below

Cisco Little Big Awards National Final

Team receiving their certificates

A team of S2s -  Oriana, Steven, Cain, Connor and Matthew were invited to the national final of the Cisco Little Big Awards down at Cisco HQ in London. The pupils had to present their Internet of Things idea to a panel of judges and an audience of their peers, followed by promoting their idea at a trade stand. Our team came up with idea of a piece of wearable tech. - 'The Broadcoat' which among other things changes temperature according to weather forecasts from the internet. The pupils also got the chance to take part in a Microbit workshop and received a tour of the state of the art Cisco building. If that wasn't enough, the team won the category for Creativity, Design & Usability.

S2 PARENTS' EVENING AND INFORMATION SESSION - TUESDAY 7 FEBRUARY

I am sure you will realise that this is an important opportunity for you to discuss your child's progress and next steps with their teachers. We sincerely hope that you are able to attend. There will be an information meeting at 3:45 to 4:00 pm in the Assembly Hall to explain the new qualifications and options your child has and also the process involved. Appointments will start directly after this meeting at 4:00 pm. Your child will be given an appointment card and letter to take home in due course. Your child will make appointments with their teachers on your behalf. Please make every effort to attend this very important evening. We look forward to seeing you at St. Paul's on Tuesday 7 February 2017.
