LETTER - HEAD OF EDUCATION SERVICES - 7 OCTOBER 2021

I am writing to provide some additional updates on the current information we have from the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) in relation to the plans for National Qualifications for this academic year.
Following the decision by Scottish Government Ministers that exams should go ahead in 2022 if it is safe to do so, East Lothian schools are planning their approaches to supporting young people through their learning in their chosen national qualification courses, and the approaches that will be used to assess their own progress as we near the planned exam diet beginning in April 2022. Full details available in letter issued 7 October 2021, from Nicola McDowell, Head of Education.
