Thanks for your patience as we got through the Target interviews on Thursday and Friday. I’ll use the info to put together a wee interim update for you, along with some practial areas for you to work on. If it’s OK with you, I’ll do this over the October break as I’d rather take a little longer to do it and make sure I get it right!
A wee reminder, based on your results so far, some of you may have been predicted as not achieving your Higher… but please remember… these targets are based on your results so far, and on you doing no more study between now and the final exam! As long as you work your socks off, you will give yourself every opportunity to make sure you pass… and hopefully pass well! On that basis, we have set everyone an initial target of a Band 6 (C) as a minimum, achieving it is up to us to work together to make sure you are capable of doing this.
We will be carrying out further reviews of you progress on a regular basis, and I am more than happy to chat with you about how you are getting on at any time. Don’t forget there is an extra study session after school on a Wednesday, and I am hoping to organise a second one for a Tuesday after school as well. If that is not possible, I will look to get a lunchtime study support session going as well. Stay tuned!
