COVID-19 Positive cases for students and teachers: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

The number of confirmed coronavirus positive cases for students and teachers in individual schools in Scotland. I want to know the numbers for each individual school, as opposed to the 'post code' numbers you are currently providing. The most up to date numbers possible, please.


While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested. We do not have data at school level on confirmed coronavirus positive cases for students and teachers in Scotland.

You may find the following information on what we do hold on pupil and staff absences useful.

Information on positive cases among children in general is available from Public Health Scotland.
