COVID-19 Education Information for Parents and Carers

In this section, you will find information and guidance to support you whilst looking after your families during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Update November 5 2020

It continues to be the aim that all pupils, in all year groups, remain in school full-time.

More evidence has emerged that shows there is a very low risk of children becoming very unwell from COVID-19, even for children with existing health conditions.

From 5 November 2020, only children whose doctors have confirmed they are clinically extremely vulnerable are advised not to attend school during the period this advice is in place.

You should speak to your child’s GP or specialist clinician if you have not already done so, to understand whether your child should still be classed as clinically extremely vulnerable.

Your school will make appropriate arrangements for you to be able to continue your education at home.
