Scottish Borders Council has confirmed all pupils in its area will return to school on 11 August.

The local authority said it would follow an in-service day, as planned, on 10 August.

It said separate arrangements were in place for Jedburgh Grammar Campus - as was normal for any new school - with details being provided directly to parents.

Chief executive Tracey Logan said: "We have been working on these plans for some time now and can reassure parents, pupils and staff that everything will be in place to make all our early years settings and schools as safe as possible."

More information is available via the council website.
