Youngsters from early learning to primary three classes made their way back to school after their extended break of two months in what is stage one of the Scottish Government’s phased reopening of schools.
A Falkirk Council spokesman said: “Allowing our youngest learners and those who need to complete important practical work to return to school is an important step forward.
“The return will be managed in line with Scottish Government guidelines. This will include social distancing, the use of face masks and proper sanitisation throughout all our facilities.”
A small number of senior secondary pupils have also been allowed into school buildings on a part-time basis to complete their exam work
Primary school pupils from P4 to P7 and secondary school pupils will continue to learn from home for the next few weeks with the possibility of returning to school after March 15.
