Please see the latest information about coronavirus (COVID-19):
- all UK schools are closed until further notice except for vulnerable children, children with EHCPs and children of key workers. It is recommended for children to remain at home

Do not consider sending your child into school if they can be looked after at home (i.e if one parent is not a key worker or one parent is at home or is working from home)
The DfE have launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:
