Scotland schools open next week for youngest pupils

Tuesday 16th February 2021


Children in P1 to P3 and pre-school will return to school for face-to-face teaching from Monday 22 February, the Scottish government has announced.

Other age groups will continue to learn from home and are unlikely to return before 15 March at the earliest, Nicola Sturgeon said.

Some secondary school students who need to complete coursework will also return to school.

All other lockdown measures will remain in place until the end of this month and possibly longer.
