EMA
Who can get an EMA? (eligibility)

EMAs are available to eligible people aged 16 to 19 who have reached school leaving age.

To be eligible, you have to meet the following criteria:
Residency
You need to have what's known as 'ordinary residence' to be eligible for EMA.

Ordinary residence means you live in one place, but there is a complicated set of rules that decide whether you're ordinarily resident in Scotland, with different arrangements in place for different immigration statuses.

Contact your local authority or bursary office for more information on whether you're eligible.


Household income
Your household income will also determine if you're eligible for EMA. Household income is the income of your parent(s) or carer(s) who live with you.

To qualify, households with one dependent child must be earning £24,421 per year or less, and households with more than one dependent child must be earning £26,884 or less, before tax.

Pastoral Care Entitlement

GIRFEC May 2016

Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) is the Scottish Governmentís approach to promoting and safeguarding the wellbeing of children in Scotland. In most cases the families around each child will be able to offer all the help and support that is needed. However, there are times when a child may need a bit of extra help. The GIRFEC approach is there to make it as easy as possible to get that help when it is needed. The GIRFEC policy requires that every child and young person and their family have access to help and support from a Named Person. The role of the Named Person is to safeguard and support the wellbeing of children and young people very much like the support that has always been offered by key members of staff in school. This new role of Named Person is integrated into the current role of key promoted members of staff in schools and serves to strengthen the support they currently provide, formalising their role as a central point of contact for children, parents and other people working with them. Below, you will find the names of the members of staff who have been given the role of Named Person for each age group of children along with the arrangements for cover in the event of absence.

Study Skills & Supported Study
Studying is not as hard as you think. Sure, it takes time and effort, but if you follow a few proven study techniques, you can decrease the amount of time you spend at the books and increase the amount you learn. In fact, we are convinced that study skills play as important a role in college success as intelligence.

We offer pupils an extensive and impressive range of ‘out of hour’s activities’ here at CHS, which forms our Study Support programme. By taking part in these activities, pupils can actually improve their grades. It has been proven that pupils who regularly attend ‘out of hours’ activities at lunchtime and after school do better in terms of their final grades compared to pupils of equal ability whom do not attend.
