School Closures

Childcare provision which has been in place since Monday, 30 March, will continue for childcare for key workers and vulnerable learners. 

The Council will continue to operate the “hub” system of strategically located primary, secondary and special school hubs, close to major traffic routes in both urban and rural areas.

School transport and free school meals will continue to operate as they have done during the week commencing 30 March.  This will continue until further notice and includes Bank Holidays.

Schools should continue to provide care for as small a number of children as possible - children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home.

Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be and only where there is no safe alternative should provision be made in schools or other settings. If you are classed as a critical worker but are able to perform the critical parts of your job effectively when working from home, then you should do so. If one parent is a critical worker but the other parent is not then the other parent should provide safe alternative arrangements at home when possible.

Only children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response should be offered places in schools/settings when there is no safe, alternative provision. Places will be prioritised for single parents of critical workers or where both parents are critical workers. 

Head teachers have been authorised to ask parents to show letters from their employer confirming their role is classified as critical. 

"Education Otherwise" is offering support for school children at this time.  Click here for more information.
