Dear Parents / Carers,

I realise that there will be considerable anxiety throughout our community as we start the year locked down and with our school closed to the majority of young people.  I want to reassure everyone that our staff team will be doing everything within our control to support the wellbeing and continuing education of all young people.

For the period from Monday 11 January to Friday 29 January, vulnerable children and the children of key workers will continue to attend school in-person.  All of these families have been contacted and the arrangements for attendance at the Liberton High School HUB has been communicated.  If you think that you qualify for a place at our HUB and have not yet been contacted then please email us at;

From Monday 11 January to Friday 29 January all other pupils should be engaged in remote learning.  Comprehensive guidance on our approach to remote learning that includes details on live teacher contact time, curated independent learning and our approach to ensure that everyone has safe digital access can be found here;

The Scottish Government will review these arrangements on Monday 18 January, taking into account the latest evidence about the new variant and progress in reducing community transmission levels. Arrangements for the period from Monday 1 February onwards will be communicated at the earliest opportunity following this review.

Stay safe everyone.

Kind regards,


Mr S. Kelly
