HT Update – Monday 9 May
pupils have now started their exam leave and a timetable has been
issued which will enable pupils access to staff at Liberton High School
throughout this period. All pupils are encouraged to make full use of
this and where required, come into school to meet with staff in
preparation for final exams.
pupils still have outstanding units to pass. The school is making every
effort to contact pupils and parents. However, pupils must also take a
level of individual responsibility to ensure that all courses are
complete. Any pupil or parent in any doubt should make immediate contact
with the school through the normal channels.
May activities are planned for pupils who have no external exams e.g.
all National 4 subjects or are sitting only 1 National 5. These begin on
Monday 16 May with a compulsory week for all pupils based at Liberton
High School. After this activities will be on offer for the remaining
two weeks and pupils will be able to sign up for activities in which
they wish to participate. More information will follow via e-mail, text
and the school website.
Please follow the link to read the SQA Statement on Edinburgh school closures:
of our staff are now based at WHEC and this has enabled us to deliver a
much more comprehensive timetable to all S1-3 pupils. This has
certainly been a very positive step forward.
departments are working to combat the loss of time during the school
day. A range of work will be issued to pupils and we would ask for
parental support in ensuring that this work is completed at home when
issued. All pupils in S1-2 should bring diary planners to school every
day so that work set for home can be recoded in them. S3 pupils will
record work on their iPads.
of Tuesday last week pupils with permission from parents were allowed
out of the school grounds at lunchtime. We have been signing pupils in
and out of the building, however, so many requests have come in that
this is proving to be very time consuming and delaying pupils at
lunchtime. As of Wednesday this week pupils will be allowed out at
lunchtime without signing out. Any parent who does not wish their child
to leave the building at lunchtime should contact the school before
Wednesday. Please note this is a change to previous arrangements.
always, should you require further information or support please
