The UK Government has approved a change to the date of next year’s early May bank holiday from Monday 4 May to Friday 8 May 2020 to mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day.

As school session dates have already been published (with a holiday on Monday 4 May 2020), the Education Service is seeking your views on an proposed additional school closure day prior to submitting an application to do so to the Scottish Government.

Full details of this proposal can be found in the VE Day 75th Anniversary letter from Fiona Robertson, Head of Education and Childrens' Services

Complete this consultation to indicate your views on this matter, the closing date being Friday 6 December 2019.
