Re-opening of schools and Early Learning Centres in August

Following the First Minister’s announcement (30/07/2020),  we are now planning and preparing for all pupils to return to school from Wednesday 12 August for the new term.

Head teachers will write to parents/carers directly on Tuesday, 4 August to confirm what day your child/children will start school.

The return to full time education for all of our children and young people is dependent on Covid-19 remaining under control. The Council is being guided by and will stringently follow the scientific evidence and advice from the Scottish Government and Public Health Scotland.

Detailed information is available on the FAQ's for Schools and ELCC reopening page.

Letter for all parents and carers

Contingency Plans for 2020/21 and Coronavirus information relating to the previous academic year is available on the Education and Learning Additional Information page.
