On 27th March Scottish Borders Council approved the report from the Director of Education on proposals to move to an Asymmetric Week in all schools from August 2014.

There was a long and detailed debate - almost one and a half hours on the paper and following a vote , 21 for to 8 against, council decided to move ahead with the proposals. An additional recommendation was agreed in that all schools and learning communities must publish for parents their plans and proposed programmes of work for Friday afternoons.

The work now begins to get ready and we will be back in touch with you to discuss the next stages of implementation.
