On 16 February, the First Minister announced that additional in-service days will be set aside for teachers to engage with the assessment, moderation and quality assurance process required for awarding National Qualifications. All secondary schools in Angus will be closed to pupils on these days. Staff will provide learning tasks in advance which should be completed independently at home.
The dates for the assessment support days across all Angus secondary schools are:
Monday 31 May and Tuesday 1 June 2021
These days will allow staff within and across our schools to work together to ensure that standards are consistently applied for awarding National Qualifications.
Primary schools will be open as usual on these days.
