  • SQA exams - Additional Support Needs Resource

Dear Parent/Carer

As the SQA exam diet approaches, attached is a resource that outlines supports for young people who require additional supports with their examinations. The section titled 'SQA Examinations' provides details about the various Additional Assessment Arrangements (AAA) that can be used to support young people in their exams. This is applicable for in school assessments (S1-6) and in SQA examinations (S4-6).

Braes High School - Additional Support Needs Resource

In addition to this resource, we would like to invite you to an open evening on Wednesday 29th March at 6.30pm at Braes High School. This will be an opportunity to explain how these supports work, their intended impact and answer any questions regarding the use of AAA.

If you would like to attend, please complete this Form

If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Kind regards

Mr Yeates & Miss Kelly
Pupil Support Department

  • Prelim 2023

As you will know our Prelim diet begins after the Christmas break - week beginning the 9th January (timetable for this can be found on each year group teams page in the files section) but you will also be aware that on Wednesday 11th January there is planned industrial action and the school will be closed to all pupils. As a result this means that the timetabled Prelim Exams due to take place on this day will be rescheduled to a later date. We will update you further with the new date for these prelims in due course.

In the meantime can I wish everyone a restful and merry festive break.

Kind regards,
Mr Ironside
