Dear Parent/Carer I hope that you have enjoyed the summer holiday period and your child is looking forward to their return to school. Our staff in schools are very much looking forward to seeing them! As you may be aware, measures to reduce the likely transmission of Covid-19 will remain in place for the first six weeks of the new term. Many of these measures will be familiar to you and your learner from previous terms. Your school will provide you with specific details on the arrangements in their setting and we ask that you refer to this information. Full details are available in the letter issued on Monday 16 August 2021 from Nicola McDowell, Head of Education Service.
