Schools and childcare


We are currently preparing for a full return to school and nursery in August 2020, for all our children and young people (unless for health reasons they continue to shield, where alternative arrangements will come directly from the school). Please see our main schools page for more information on what to expect and how to prepare your child(ren) for going back to school.

The latest information on school transport arrangements can be found here.

You may be entitled to free school meals or clothing grants. Please see our most up to date information and how to apply here.

We are also taking applications for this year's Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA). This is a weekly payment of £30 for young people who are planning to continue in post-compulsory education from August 2020. Please click here for more information.

Our activity centre hubs will be coming to an end on Tuesday 4th August, as schools prepare to welcome pupils back the following week. The centres were set up following the decision by the Scottish Government to close all schools, early learning centres and childcare facilities. Our centres ensured that key workers had access to childcare facilities to enable them to carry out front-line, emergency work supporting the COVID response.
