Coronavirus update from Midlothian Council

From Midlothian Council.

We have just been informed, Sun 22 Mar, by John Swinney, Depute FM of updated advice to local authorities in relation to S4-S6. As a result of this advice, S4-S6 pupils should NOT go into school for any reason. An exception is vulnerable S4-S6 pupils who access Complex Needs Provision. They should follow individual arrangements already in place for them with their school. Instead, where possible, S4-S6 pupils, should finish their course work at home and schools will make arrangements to provide further guidance and support to S4-S6 pupils in due course. Schools, as of tomorrow, Mon 23 Mar, will be working with staff to plan this support. Further details will be coming from SQA about how pupils’ quals and achievements will be graded in the light of this latest decision announced today by Mr Swinney.
