Local parents, carers and pupils are reminded that the additional in-service days proposed by the Scottish Government means that both the summer and Christmas breaks will be a day longer for pupils.

The two additional in-service days will take place on Tuesday 20 August 2019 and Monday January 6 2020 and aim to support professional learning for teaching staff. 

This also means that West Lothian schools will resume for pupils after the Christmas break on Tuesday 7 January 2020.

All West Lothian Council-run secondary, primary, nursery and special schools are affected by this change.
