School closures due to Coronavirus (Covid-19)

All schools, colleges and early years settings are temporarily closed to everyone apart from the children of key workers and vulnerable children.

If your work is critical to the COVID-19 response, or you work in one of the critical sectors listed on the GOV.UK advice page, and you cannot keep your child safe at home then your children will be prioritised for education provision.

Vulnerable children includes those supported by social care, young carers, disabled children and those with education, health and care (EHC) plans.

You can also find more information on the GOV.UK Closure of educational settings: information for parents and carers page.
