Partial Closure 23rd-25th March

With high levels of staff absence and very limited availability of supply cover, we only just managed to keep the school open last week for all year groups. This week the situation has deteriorated slightly and so we need to take steps to protect learning and teaching as best we can. What has been decided is that if we ask one year group to remain at home each day, the teachers who would usually be teaching them can cover other classes for absent colleagues. Therefore please be aware of the following:

  • Wednesday 23rd March- S3 pupils should remain at home
  • Thursday 24th March- S2 pupils should remain at home
  • Friday 25th March- S1 pupils should remain at home.

It is too early to speculate about next week but I will issue a further update on Friday via a parental email and website post.
