Coronavirus - School Moves teaching And learning Online

Following the announcement (18th March 2020) from the Scottish Government that schools and nurseries in Scotland are to close in response to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the High School of Dundee and the High School of Dundee Nursery have moved teaching and learning online.

We have made arrangements to provide care at Mayfield for pupils, from Nursery to F6, whose parents are essential workers.

The School has been working hard making plans and preparations to ensure that we are able to continue to offer our young people the very best learning opportunities at this unprecedented time through our online platforms and resources. We are very conscious that the closure will be particularly concerning for those pupils who are due to sit certificate examinations and we are working hard to support them and to provide detail on arrangements, as those becomes available from the SQA.

This is clearly an unprecedented and constantly evolving situation and the First Minister stated on March 18th that it was not possible to say yet when schools and nurseries will be able to fully reopen as normal.

Throughout this process the School will continue to follow the guidance of the Scottish Government and the NHS.

High School of Dundee Rector, Lise Hudson, said, “Our primary concern is always the health and wellbeing of our pupils, staff and everyone in the High School community, and like all schools we have a responsibility to play our part in combatting the spread of COVID-19.

“Thank you to all parents, staff and of course our pupils for their understanding through this difficult set of circumstances.”

High School of Dundee parents have been receiving further information from the School directly.
