Schools and early years

Inverclyde school re-opening plans

Pupils in Inverclyde will return to full time education when the schools reopen on Wednesday 12 August.                           

The first few days will see a staggered restart with pupils being welcomed back in smaller groups initially to allow everyone - staff and young people - to adapt to the various changes and safety measures being put in place. 

In line with government guidance, all students will be back full time by 18 August. 

Teachers and support staff will start the new term on 11 August with an in-service day. 

Letters have gone out to parents explaining the reopening plans as well as a comprehensive frequently asked questions (FAQ) document, which is available here https://www.inverclyde.gov.uk/covid-19/faq-schools-and-early-learning.

The council’s original blended learning model combining a mix of classroom and home-based learning remains an option should it be required.

Schools will be in contact with parents directly to inform when their child should return during the first week.
