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.

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.
