2 DAYS IN CLASS + 3 DAYS AT HOME = 1 WEEK OF SCHOOL
Plans are being prepared on how children can return safely to resume learning
PAUL HUTCHEON

PUPILS could go back to school for only two days a week under plans being drawn up by education chiefs.

Some children would be in class on Mondays and Tuesdays with others attending on Thursdays and Fridays. Wednesdays would be used for a deep clean of school estates and teacher preparation.

Scotland’s schools have been closed for two months as part of the Government strategy to combat Covid-19.

As a result, hundreds of thousands of parents are having to combine home-working with ensuring that their children are receiving an education.

As revealed by the Daily Record, schools are set to go back on August 11.

Pupils are to receive a “blend” of classroom and home education. Smaller class sizes will also be required to meet the needs of physical distancing.
