The First Minister has announced, that the Scottish Government is currently planning for the reopening of Scottish schools on 11th August 2020. This announcement is part of a wider planned route map on the reopening of schools and ELC settings which can be accessed here –

We understand that this will be an anxious and uncertain time for many people, including parents and carers. For that reason the Scottish Government have produced a Q&A document to support parents and carers at this time. This document covers some of the key questions that parents will have with regard to the safe reopening of schools and ELC settings.
