School closures

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are working closely with schools and early years providers in the borough to support them in their individual preparations for opening more widely as soon as they are confident it is safe to do so. The government has set an earliest possible return date of 1 June for children in an early years setting, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, and will announce on 28 May whether this can go ahead. However, we must be confident that this can be done in a safe way, because the health and safety of children and staff remains our first priority during this period.

Further guidance for parents and carers is available on the government website.

Whether or not schools and early years providers open more widely from 1 June onwards, they will continue to offer places for vulnerable children and those of key workers. It is half term week from Monday 25 May to Friday 29 May. Parents should check individual school statuses below.
