School Attendance

The Scottish Government has directed that all school buildings in Scotland will reopen to pupils in the week commencing Monday 10th August. Aberdeen City Council is required to comply with Scottish Government direction.    

A comprehensive risk assessment has been undertaken by each school and robust measures have been put in place across the school estate.  Aberdeen City Council and school leadership teams will keep our plans and risk assessments continually under review and will update these in keeping with national guidance and local knowledge. 

We continue to work closely with the Scottish Government and NHS Grampian to ensure all necessary health and safety measures are in place in our school buildings.   

When school buildings are open there is a legal requirement for children and young people to attend.  We would encourage parents to contact schools if they are anxious about the return to school buildings.
