COSLA comment on closure of schools and nurseries

Councillor Stephen McCabe, COSLA Children and Young People Spokesperson, said:

“We have been working closely with the Scottish Government and our local authority partners to consider the implications of the closure of schools and nurseries. It is vital that we support staff, parents and children and young people in these exceptional circumstances. We will continue this partnership work to ensure that local authorities get the right support and have the flexibility to make the decisions based on local circumstances. This will include support to the most vulnerable, our young people involved in exams and those who provide critical public services.”
