With a number of changes for this school session, please find the updated information below.
East Lothian Council has published the following Session Date Information (including school holiday dates):
- Session 2019-2020 (updated Jan 2020)
An additional day’s leave has been allocated for the 75th Anniversary VE Day Celebrations – calendar updated in January 2020
Two additional in-service days were granted for session 2019/2020 as part of the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers’ pay negotiations. These dates for these were: Tuesday 22 October 2019 and Tuesday 7 January 2020. Pupils did not attend school on these dates.
For future planning, parents and carers may find this information useful.
Update: Following the Scottish Government decision for schools to re-open in August 2020 – the 10th and 11th shall be staff in-service days and Pupil Return will start from the 12th August, but to a blended learning model. Each school will be in touch with families directly regarding which days and times will be allocated – and the procedures for attending school on those days. As the start back date is a week earlier than planned, the school year will end on Friday 25th June 2021. A revised Session calendar will be available in due course.
