    Forth Valley kids go back to school

    Written by on August 18, 2021

    Schoolkids across the Forth Valley are returning to the classroom today.

    It’s the start of the new school year in Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire.

    Staff and pupils aged 12 and over will still need to wear face coverings – and one-metre social distancing remains.

    But class “bubbles” have been scrapped – meaning those identified as a close contact will no longer need to self-isolate.

    Schools are being encouraged not to hold assemblies for at least six weeks.
