The report presents the distribution of cases of COVID-19 across the pupil population in Scotland from 17 August to 18 October 2020, covering the period of Term 1 of the 2020 to 2021 school year. These data show the occurrence of COVID-19 cases in this population across the course of Term 1, and by area, and by school type. This does not reflect directly the measurement of COVID-19 incidents within schools, as not all pupil cases identified will have been present in school during their infectious period.
