You will appreciate this is a fast-developing situation.

Updated position: Our secondary schools are now closed for ALL pupils including S4 – S6, AND staff tomorrow, Monday 23 March 2020. No S4 – S6 pupil should report to school tomorrow.

We will review this approach on a regular and daily basis. We will ensure that no young person is disadvantaged by this decision which is made in good faith and to ensure we keep our communities safe.

We will continue to plan to ensure all of our young people receive the qualifications they deserve.

Schools will be in touch with their own  S4 – S6 pupils to give details about what work can be done remotely.

Secondary school buildings will now only be open for emergency childcare for category 1 critical key workers in NHS, Health and Social Care Partnership AND only if they have no other means of childcare.
