Dear Parents / Carers,

As you will be aware all schools will be closed from today, arrangements to support the most vulnerable and provide education for key workers are being made centrally and will be published next week. All SQA exams are cancelled, levels and grades of qualifications will be decided on school estimates, coursework and prior attainment. It is important that Senior Phase pupils work through the tasks set whilst at home as in some cases this work will contribute to SQA coursework or will provide more evidence to validate school estimates.

Our arrangements for on line learning are as follows;

Senior Phase: Pupils in S4, S5 and S6

All Senior Phase pupils will receive ‘responsive’ educational activities through Microsoft Teams. This has a ‘chat’ function which will allow pupils to interact with teachers as they work through the learning activities set on Teams. The link below will take you to the Edinburgh Microsoft login page where pupils sign in using their Scottish Candidate Number (SCN) and their usual school password.

Broad General Education (BGE): Pupils in S1, S2 and S3

All BGE pupils will have work set for them from every subject via the news feed on the School App. This work will be proportionate to the time allocated on their regular timetable and will be posted every Monday. This will not have an interactive function; however, parents / carers and young people can post questions and expect to get feedback via each departments Twitter feed.

If you have not done so you can download the app for free, just search for School App for Parents and the select Liberton High School.
