Senior school learning agreement – application – further information

We are asking S5 and S6 pupils to reflect carefully on what their learning package should be like for next session and beyond.

I am keen to ensure that learners are returning to school for the right reasons, that they are committing to their own and school expectations and are clear that the learning options chosen are well judged and carefully considered.

In considering what they aim to achieve in the senior school by thinking about all the options available including blended programmes involving school, college, work experience, buddying and volunteering whilst also thinking about what skills and qualities they need to be developing in preparation for ongoing learning in life beyond school – young people can better plan out their time, their learning pathways and identify what gaps they may have as well as key strengths.

We have also asked young people to use this as an opportunity to apply for positions of responsibility to support their personal development in order to reduce the overall number of requests and tasks set e.g prefect application, buddying, science mentors.  This personal statement can thereafter be built upon for senior school profiles, UCAS and job applications etc.

This is not an exercise in refusing access to the senior school.  It will allow us to focus better on young people who may not have a clear focus, who may need additional support and indeed those who wish to build and enhance existing strengths.  There may well be subsequent discussions with individuals and parents regarding the appropriateness of plans, especially if already not engaging, attending or achieving.

Young people have had input through and assembly and I am more than happy to provide guidance for parents  if that would be helpful.  We do however want the young person to be more accountable for their learning decisions and the nature of the package they are considering – especially in terms of school and beyond pathways.

I am happy to discuss further. Rector
