Schools will reopen from 11 August
Scottish schools have been asked to start preparing for the return of pupils in the autumn.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told the Scottish Parliament that staff would begin work next month to prepare classrooms for the next term – and “a different model of learning”.
She said all schools would reopen from 11 August using a “blended model”.
This would involve part-time study in school combined with some learning at home.
Ms Sturgeon said she wanted to give “a huge thank you to parents, carers and teachers” for their work during lockdown.
