Tuesday 2nd March 2021
Today in Parliament the First Minister gave an update on the return to in-school learning for students. This builds on her statement in Parliament last Tuesday. The next significant date we will prepare for is Monday 15th March, unless new public health circumstances force a reconsideration. In terms of our school this means
The First Minister also stated, ‘a clear expectation that all secondary school pupils will be back in school on a full time basis following the Easter holidays’. The logical implication of this appears to be that the 2m distancing mitigation will not apply after Easter. This remains to be confirmed.
Education Scotland will publish guidance for schools on the phased return over the next few days. We will review this and work with colleagues across Midlothian to ensure the safety of everyone as we bring more students back to in-school learning.
From Monday 15th March, all staff and Senior Phase students will continue to be offered twice-weekly Covid-19 lateral flow testing. We will continue to strongly encourage all eligible to take part in this programme of at-home testing as it is a further important way in which we can ensure that our school remains as safe as possible.
Further details on arrangements for Monday 15th March will be posted on the website and in Google Year Group Classrooms later this week and next.Tweet  Share on Facebook
