Detailed arrangements are being put in place by the City of Edinburgh Council to ensure the safest return possible for pupils and staff when schools reopen in August.
Following the announcement by the Scottish Government last month, all pupils will return on Wednesday 12 August, a week earlier than programmed.
In accordance with national guidance, social distancing, hygiene regimes and risk assessments will be essential to keep children and staff safe, with the result that not all children will be able to return to school at the same time.
Here is the letter issued by Alistair Gaw Chief Executive Director for Communities and Families on pupils’ return to mainstream schools from 12 August 2020
It is lovely to see our learners continuing with their sports and interests in the different ways we are all faced with at the moment and excelling in their fields! In a recent TAGB (Taekwondo Association of Great Britain) Scottish Junior Online Patterns Competition three Currie Primary School children won medals for their division! For Yellow Belt James (P2) won the gold medal and Aaron (P2) won bronze, and for White Belt Gilles (P4) won bronze. All three are members of Pentlands Taekwondo and this was their first time competing. They worked really hard and did extremely well against a large number of entries from across Scotland. Well done boys – we are all very proud of your amazing achievements.
