Schools update (24 June)

Following the Deputy First Minister's statement on 23 June 2020, it looks much more likely that children and young people will now return to school on a full-time basis from 12 August, although this is not yet guaranteed.

We are expecting further guidance shortly on the practicalities, including revisions to guidance on hygiene and other safety measures. We do not yet have an updated position for school transport which is a significant factor for many schools.

Please do not contact your school as there is a lot of work to be done to revise our current plans.  We do understand that many parents and carers will be wanting to make plans for the new term. Your schools will be in touch as soon as possible, once we've worked through the guidance and new arrangements.

Any new general arrangements which apply to all schools will be shared here on our website.

Thank you for your continued support.
