Phase 2 of Return to In-School Learning

We continue to work closely with SBC and the other secondary schools to prepare our plans for bringing back our young people into the school building.  All our young people will receive some in-school education from 15 March up until the Easter holidays, which begin on 2 April. Young people in S4-S6 who are studying for national qualifications will be prioritised for this face-to-face learning.
A full-time return for secondary school pupils is now proposed for after the Easter Holidays.
I am sure you will understand that there are many challenges that require to be worked through to deliver a suitable timetable.  Thank you for your patience and we will provide more information next week.
