Yesterday, the Scottish Government announced that, from Tuesday, 5 January, there would be further restrictions put in place to limit the spread of Covid-19. Please be reassured that St Leonards continues to follow the relevant guidance, as well as closely liaising with SCIS, BSA and other schools in Scotland.
As a result of the enhanced Tier 4 restrictions, schools must remain closed in Scotland, apart from to provide care for key worker children and boarding pupils.
For the month of January, teaching and learning will therefore be delivered via our online learning platform, St Leonards Connected. Staff are fully prepared to deliver an excellent programme for pupils to ensure that they continue to learn effectively whilst not physically at school.
We are currently reviewing the teaching programme for the rest of the term and are looking closely at options for the February Half Term, whether it is providing further on site taught classes during the holiday or moving this and have a programme for pupils on campus. We await further government guidance and so will continue to update you and our parent body, as soon as we can.
