Please find below just a few changes…

Plan B

It is important that we remember that a Plan B does exist and this remains an option should there be a local or national requirement to move to a blend of physical and virtual learning.  Although we will respond to the unique circumstances and continue to refine this offer over time, an overview of of our thinking (as at June 2020) for this blended learning model for Inverurie Academy can be found below.
