YOUNG Fife children will return to schools on Monday, it has been confirmed.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed in her briefing today that children in primaries 1-3 will return to the classroom as of Monday, February 22, as Scotland looks to get out of lockdown.

High school pupils who have a practical need to return to classrooms will also be permitted to attend, although the numbers allowed in a building will be strictly limited.

This is an ongoing story and will be updated.
