COVID-19 UPDATES

This page will contain all of the latest updates since the announcements around partial school closures.

Please keep checking this page to ensure you are fully up to date with all news.

If you have not already, please reurn all Asda vouchers given to children eligible for free school meals, so these can be topped up and re-distributed after Easter.

NHS You must

It is important that school remains a safe place for children and Government advice is that the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.

Therefore, we are continuing to provide care for a limited number of children - children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home.

Government guidance on the children who are eligible to access school can be found by following the link below:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision

Please be aware that the principles below should be followed:

  1. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
  2. If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.
  3. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.
  4. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.
  5. Residential special schools, boarding schools and special settings continue to care for children wherever possible
