Additional Day of School Closure: Friday 8 May 2020 for VE Day 75 Celebrations

Late last year, a consultation exercise was undertaken with parents/carers in relation to an additional day’s leave on Friday 8 May 2020 to coincide with VE Day 75 celebrations. The outcome of this consultation was an overwhelming support for an additional day’s school closure, with the retention of the already agreed school holiday closure on Monday 4 May 2020. Approval was sought from the Scottish Government and this has now been received. This means that schools will be closed on Monday 4 May 2020 and on Friday 8 May 2020.
