Climate Change Protest 20 September

Please see the attached letter from Andy Gray, Head of Schools and Lifelong Learning, regarding the planned Climate Change protest scheduled to take place on Friday 20 September 2019. A portion of the letter is also copied below.

“The Education Committee voted, on 16 August, to allow pupils to participate in one Climate Change protest during session 2019-2020 which will be categorised as an authorised absence. This will be for the next protest which is scheduled to take place on Friday 20 September.

Edinburgh schools will be open and operating normally on 20 September. Pupils who wish to participate in the Climate Change protest and who are not at school on that morning will be marked as an authorised absence if their parent/carer has written to confirm their absence in advance and accept responsibility for their safety.”
