S2 Key Dates

2015-2016

Information for Parents / Carers

 

Dear Parent/Carer,

S2 is a crucial stage in the Broad General Education. During this session pupils will begin to personalize their curriculum with a view to determining which subjects they will study to certificate level at the end of S4. These qualifications are the gateway to Higher/Further Education, apprenticeships and the world of work.

This is now the time to have a very important  element of choice within the curriculum  and it is essential that both pupils and parent/carers have as much information as possible to guide them through the decision-making process.

This leaflet outlines the key dates for S2 pupils in the session ahead and we hope it will prove useful to you in supporting your child through this very important stage in their school career.
