The First Minister last week announced that Scotland has entered Phase 1 of its recovery route map.
More details will be published in the coming weeks about what this means for the county's schools as further information is made available by the national Education Recovery Group. However the council has confirmed what this means for its Children’s Hubs and schools.
Chief Operating Officer for Education Lesley Brown said: “Our Hubs were welcomed by the families who have been eligible for this provision. It has allowed our keyworkers to continue with their essential roles and provided stability and support for their children while they do so. As our staff return to schools we must look at how we can combine the requirements to continue to provide this emergency childcare, plan for a new and very different academic year, and continue to support distance learning. Children currently attending the six Children’s Hubs will move to their own school for childcare during June. Parents are being informed about this change and the arrangements being put in place to support their child.
“Learning from the Hubs has also been helpful to us as we establish new routines and practices and this experience will be vital as we move forward.”
