Survey – Getting it Right for Our Return to School in August

Our Headteachers and school staff are currently progressing their plans to welcome children and young people back into school in August. To help us get this as right as we can for children and young people we would appreciate your views. We would be most grateful if you could complete this short survey regarding your child’s return to school in August by Monday 15 June 2020 4pm. Paper copies are available from your school by request.

Scholar Update
Scholar is an online learning platform developed by Heriot Watt University. It provides course learning materials and revision resources for a variety of courses at National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher. Not all subjects are catered for on Scholar but a lot of them are.

Students can access Scholar by going to https://scholar.hw.ac.uk and logging in using a personal username and password. New S4 students were sent an email today from Mr White with those login details. New S5 and S6 students should use the same username and password from last session. If a student has forgotten their username or password they should email Mr White.

The videos below provide an introduction to Scholar from one of the school coordinators and information about how to login.
