We understand many families will want to get away during the October holidays after spending the summer in lockdown. Scottish Government guidance states schools should have arrangements in place to identify and support children who may need to self-isolate. They are also asked to engage with children, young people and their families to ensure rules around quarantine or self-isolation are followed. As such, we are asking all parents and carers to inform us of any plans for foreign travel for which quarantine restrictions may apply upon their return. This information will not be shared anywhere else but will help ensure the safety of our pupils and staff when schools return after the October holidays.
