P6/P7 Open Evening - Monday 2 October 2017 at 6:30 pm

The transfer from Primary to Secondary school is a very important step for both pupil and parent alike. So, it is important to us that your child feels as secure and comfortable as possible with the move to St. Paul’s RC Academy. The aim of our Open Evening is to show your child and you, not just the curricular challenges that lie ahead but how the involvement in the wider life of the school contributes to the development of a well-rounded, confident individual. Therefore, my colleagues and I would like to invite you and your child to an Open Evening beginning at 6:30 pm on Monday 2nd October 2017. This evening will focus on sharing our S1 experience educational and extra-curricular successes which makes St. Paul’s truly a “Community of many Gifts”.


INFORMATION SESSION - 3:45 TO 4:15 PM APPOINTMENTS - 4:15 TO 6:15 PM 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. If you are unable to attend and wish to discuss this with us please contact your son or daughter’s Guidance Teacher or House Head.


This is now available under the School tab.

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.
