Assessment window 1 – Is now complete and well done to all staff and pupils for their engagement. Our Chief invigilator said the youngsters handled the situation very well. The next steps are the important ones in terms of getting feedback and planning next steps to help pupils reach their goals.

We are showing our concert across the School and will share with Families next Wednesday, we have our YPI event next Thursday Home | YPI (ypiscotland.org.uk) , we have our annual Swim Gala and we will be beaming our Christmas Service live from South Leith Parish Church to our classrooms.
