Return to school after Easter 2021
All secondary school pupils returned to in-school learning after the Easter holidays following a Scottish Government announcement on 30 March.
Schools will work with their pupils and parents to explain all of the necessary measures that have been put in place to ensure that learning can continue. This is to make sure that we all play our part in reducing the potential for community transmission of Covid-19. In particular:
- Secondary pupils no longer need to maintain 2m social distancing in school buildings.
- Staff/ adults must continue to maintain 2m distancing.
- Face coverings must still be worn within secondary school buildings (all pupils and staff unless medically exempt).
We also ask that all parents/carers avoid congregating outwith our school buidlings and continue to follow FACTS guidance.
F - wear a face covering
A - avoid crowds
C - clean your hands
T - keep a 2m distance from others
S - self-isolate and book a test if you show symptoms of Covid-19.
Letter to all parents and carers
Schools shared a letter from Executive Director for Education and Children's Services, Lesley Brown, on 20 April outlining the arrangements for pupils' return and including information on key issues such as ventilation, reporting positive cases of Covid-19, senior phase pupils and transitions. Read the letter here.
Home to school transport
Schools and transport providers have shared arrangements directly with families who use this service. Please read this information and be aware of any changes to your usual arrangements.
Face coverings are essential for all age groups and must be worn at all times in the journey unless a medical exemption exists. Transport providers reserve the right to withhold travel from any pupil not adhering to this requirement.
