Full Return 15th March

We are delighted that from Monday 15th March, all our learners will be back in school. However the current health crisis continues, and this means we cannot afford to relax our health and safety measures. Parents/carers have been emailed a summary of the arrangements, and a copy can be found here: Full Return Arrangements

D&G Education Update

All parents/carers should have received an email from D&G today. This confirmed that all primary pupils are expected to return to school full-time from Monday 15th March. Secondary pupils will return part-time, and each secondary school will advise parents/carers directly as to what this means for their child.

The Management Team is working with Health & Safety to ensure our arrangements meet all current guidance, and we will advise parents/carers of these arrangements as soon as we can.

Phased Return Arrangements

All parents/carers should have received a letter via email from the Director of Education on Thursday 18th February confirming that Nursery to P3 children are expected to return to school full-time from Monday 22nd February. The childcare hub for P4-P7 will continue, as will home learning for P4-P7.

As the risk of Covid-19 transmission continues to be a priority, Health & Safety arrangements are in place which we ask all children, parents/carers and adults to follow in order to protect all members of our community. The details for these arrangements were emailed to parents on Friday 19th February, but can also be found here: Phased Return arrangements

Letter from the Director regarding phased return from 22nd February

The First Minister announced on 16th February that Nursery to P3 will return to school from Monday 22nd February. A letter outlining D&G arrangements has been emailed to all parents/carers today. It can also be read here: 20210218 Letter to Parents

The staff are currently working through the updated Health and Safety guidance, and we will advise parents tomorrow. However this is not a return to normal: the classes will work in bubbles to limit contact. This will include staggered break and lunchtimes. The bubbles will be Nursery; Rainbow Room; P1; P2; P3; hub bubble P4/5 and hub bubble P6/7.

We know that staggered start/end of day times cause families difficulty, so we will continue with the same start of 9.00 a.m. and end of 3.10 p.m. We will continue to use the different entry gates and doors, and only parents of Nursery and P1 pupils should be entering the school grounds. Only one parent/carer should be coming to school for drop-off/collection; face coverings must be worn and 2m social distancing for adults must be followed.

Thank you for your ongoing support as we move to this phased return.
