Urgent update for all parents and carers. Please share this as widely as you can.
All parents and carers
In response to a further update on the social distancing advice, a decision has been taken to cancel the provision of meals in school buildings next week. We will provide direct payments to families with the first payment being made this week. Further information on arrangements for keyworker’s children will continue to be communicated over the coming week.
Given the latest public health advice, the Scottish Government has now decided that, with immediate effect, no young person should attend school. Schools will make direct contact with parents/carers and young people to advise if there are any outstanding requirements of courses that can be completed remotely, and safely, following public health advice. The SQA will be developing an assessment process and more details will follow.
Parents of children in Special Schools will be contacted by their headteacher with updates.
Information on our Children’s Activity Centres for key workers’ children will be sent out on Monday. Hoping to start as early next week, as we can manage. We are trying to ensure a model for the longer term that meets the needs of our young people.
