Information for Parents and Carers of S3,4,5 (new S4, S5, S6)
Dear parents, carers and students
I speak on behalf of all Broughton HS staff in sending all good wishes during this exceptional time. I hope you and your loved ones are well, staying safe and are able to use your time to look after your wellbeing. For students, while learning from home cannot be seen as a direct substitute for learning at school you will find that your teachers have been doing a great deal to provide you with learning opportunities even if you cannot come into the school building. You should be on your Teams app on a daily basis and following advice from your teachers. Please utilise this as an opportunity to continue to make progress across all of your subject areas.
Throughout Edinburgh the council is striving to ensure that all young people have access to online technology. We want to ensure equity of access so that no-one has to fall behind. With this in mind, please complete this survey as accurately as you can. It will only take a couple of minutes. Once the results are in we will discuss them with senior officers and establish the best way forward.
Mr J Wilson
For our Muslim families and friends, Happy Ramadan. Wishing a blessed Ramadan that will inspire you with courage and strength that will help you to win every challenge of life!

Don’t forget, as it’s a live panel, students will need to join UCAS on Facebook at 15:00 if they want their questions answered. They should already have received an invite, but in case they've missed it, please spread the word.
We understand that the situation with COVID-19 is a concerning time for everyone and that with the current school closures, children and young people may feel particularly unsettled. Psychological Services are happy to offer advice and support at this time.
