School closures

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Since lockdown began on 23 March schools have been open for a small number of children who are vulnerable or whose parents are key workers. If a school needs to close, the school will contact those families directly about arrangements for their child including re-opening dates.

Phased reopening of schools

The Prime Minister has announced the Government's intention for a phased return for early years settings and schools.

Your school will be in touch with you with more details, including:

  • how they intend to implement the government's plan for re-opening schools
  • when the school will re-open and for which year groups
