THE first minister has confirmed that all primary school children will return to the classrooms on March 15.

All secondary school pupils will also return after the Easter holidays in April, Ms Sturgeon confirmed.

Pupils in years 4-6 will have priority, although all pupils will be in at some stage as of March 15 on a rotational basis.

The first minister has reiterated her stance that if everyone sticks by the current guidance, then the relaxation of other restrictions could be sooner than currently anticipated, but no changes are being made at this time.
