School closures in an emergency

Schools are only open to in-person learning for pupils in P1-3, along with a limited number of senior phase pupils.

All other children and young people will have remote learning.

From the week beginning 22 February, we plan:

  • a full-time return to school for all remaining primary school children
  • a part-time return to school for all secondary pupils
  • a return for all regulated childcare, including breakfast and after-school clubs, for primary pupils

Read more about the back to school plans on gov.scot.

School closures can happen because of emergencies like:

  • severe winds
  • flooding
  • extreme winter weather
  • the impact of coronavirus

These decisions are made in the interest of student and staff safety.
