Stirling Council has written to all parents and carers to update them on the impact of planned national strike action.

All Stirling Council nurseries, primary schools and additional support needs settings will close from Tuesday 6 September to Thursday 8 September.

Bannockburn, Stirling and Wallace High schools will also close to pupils.

All other High schools will remain open.

A letter has been issued to parents and carers today, with further information on alternative arrangements and supports to follow.

Stirling Council Leader, Cllr Chris Kane, said: “After a thorough review of the likely impact of the strikes on our schools, a final decision has today been made to close all primary schools, additional support needs settings as well as Stirling, Wallace and Bannockburn High schools during the strike period.

“We’ve taken these decisions to ensure the safety and security of our young people and staff.

“We’ll issue more information for parents and carers shortly to confirm details on the learning and support provision we’ll put in place over the three days of the strikes, but it was important that we alerted parents and carers as soon as possible to the closures in order that everybody has time to put in place appropriate arrangements.”

Alternative arrangements for those receiving free school meals will be confirmed through schools in the coming days.

Updates will also be posted on the Council’s web page for strike updates:
