S3 profiles

​Introduction

All S3 learners will have a profile that reflects their progress in learning and achievement. This section contain 'snapshots' from learner profiles created in different schools.

Watch a short film made by Speyside High School in Moray, which reflects the school's approach to profiling and the S3 Profile.

 

Learner statements

As part of their S3 profile, young people create a learner statement.

These 'snapshots' come from learner profiles in different schools. They provide a range of examples of learners' comments on their work. These are examples from a number of schools that have recently been involved in further developing approaches to profiling. They need to be considered as 'work in progress'.
