With regard to the ongoing developments and clarifications concerning the Leaving Certificate over the past week, we are forwarding the latest information received from the Department of Education yesterday evening. It can be accessed here A Guide to State Examinations and Accredited Grades for Leaving Certificate 2021
We would recommend that parents /guardians read this document with their daughter to ensure that everyone is familiar with all information to date. The most immediate point to note on page seven is the opening of the student portal, to quote:
Students will be required to register on the SEC’s Candidate Portal; confirm their subject and level entry details; opt for the examinations and/or to receive SEC Accredited Grades. The SEC’s Candidate Portal is expected to open in the week of 8 March 2021 to allow students to make their choices. Students will have approximately one week in which to do this. Details of the students’ choices will be provided to each school. The portal will re-open in late April/early May to enable candidates to review their choices.
We are very much looking forward to seeing all 6th years back in school on Monday. We would ask that all students have completed the Return to School Form
which will be sent to her this afternoon as a Google Form. Without completing this form, students will not be permitted to come into the school on Monday and upon return, all students will be required to strictly adhere to All COVID-19 protocols
. Rest assured that we will be here to support and assist our students as they negotiate this process between here and June.
