As you may already know, we are aware of persons in the school/setting who have tested positive for COVID-19. We have been working closely with NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance. Persons have now been contacted because they have been in close and sustained contact with the case and the tracking process is now complete. These contacts will need to self-isolate and have been asked to book a COVID-19 test. Appropriate guidance and advice have been given.

If there are any further cases of COVID-19 in the school/setting, we will ensure these individuals, and any of their close contacts, are advised to self-isolate promptly. If you have not been contacted and your child remains well, you should continue to follow the school’s / setting’s existing arrangements for your child. Enhanced cleaning and infection control measures are in place in line with national guidance. The school / setting is safe and remains open.

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scotwww.nhsinform.scot or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816. Please note that a test should only ever be booked if you or your child has these specifics symptoms. Remember to stay at home if anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19.

Covid-19 Testing Update

crest2

We have been made aware that some parents/carers have been advised, through the phone hotline to book a PCR test, that children who are contacts should not have a PCR test. This is incorrect advice in Scotland. Any member of staff or a pupil who is a contact of a positive case is required to organise a PCR test.

If anyone is having difficulty booking a test on the phone, they should try booking a test on the UK Gov website (https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-testhttps://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test), and the parent/carer should choose the option when asked: "Why are you asking for a test":  I’ve been in contact with someone who’s tested positive for coronavirus and "I found out in another way that I’m a contact (England, Wales and Scotland only)

SQA Information

crest2

You will be aware that we will email your child with a letter at the end of today which will explain the provisional grades we will submit to SQA at the end of this week. You will receive a copy of this letter, by email. Students can also pick up a paper copy from the assembly hall tomorrow. The letter explains the process of setting these provisional grades, as well as a link to SQA's appeals process and information about support which is available from Skills Development Scotland over the summer.

If your child thinks there has been a clerical error in collating these results then please do get in touch with us so that we can check. Unfortunately in terms of making appeals, we cannot discuss these grades before the end of term, but our staff will be available to discuss possible appeals with your child once school resumes (from 18 August). Your child does have the right to make a direct appeal to SQA over the summer, as our letter will explain. Note that the deadline for priority appeals - those where the offer of a place at higher or further education are involved - is 24 August.

If your child is concerned about the impact of these results on their chosen pathway, do please encourage them to get in touch with their guidance teacher before the end of term.
