Keyworkers information on School Closures

Keyworkers information on School Closures

To limit the spread of COVID-19, the government have advised that if children can stay safely at home, they should.

Schools and all childcare providers are being asked to continue 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.

Any child whose parents work in one of the below critical sectors will be prioritised for education provision:

  • Health and social care
  • Education and childcare
  • Key public services
  • Local and national government
  • Food and other necessary goods
  • Public safety and national security
  • Transport
  • Utilities, communication and financial services.

You can find a full list of prioritised sectors and keyworkers information on school closures at the link below:
