Balerno Head Teacher Update

Give It A Go
Current Guidance
All City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) educational establishments will now be closed to all pupils and staff, with no exceptions. There will be no access for anyone to these establishments. As I know more I will update you and I will continue to correspond with you as soon as I have appropriate information to share from next week.
SQA Exam Diet
We are still working on an FAQ for parents and carers of pupils in S4,5,6 affected by the cancellation of the exam diet this year. Thank you for your patience in allowing to collate this to give you the best possible and most up to date information. As I write staff are still compiling information to submit to the SQA and we will share further information as we have it.
Website updates
I have added a heading to the school website – Covid_19 Updates. We will add any new and updated information in this link, as quite often there are documents that are too large for the email system that we use. I have posted a document on how to use Teams to this location and this is a document to help set up this application on Office 365. This has been implemented by the majority of departments and will be how they communicate with the pupils in regard to their learning in the coming weeks. This can be located at –
Thank you
Again, I would like to pass on my thanks for the many communications that I received over the last few days passing on your thanks for the professionalism of the staff and their approach to dealing with this unique situation. This is really appreciated by all the staff and I have passed this message on to them.
