School Closure Information

School Closure Information


During this time we would like to signpost you towards the information provided by the Department of Education. 

From Friday 20 March schools, childcare and other educational settings are closed for everyone except:

  • children of critical workers
  • vulnerable children

The Department of Education have published guidance for parents and carers on who is deemed to be a critical worker. Please see the link below for further clarification:


The Government guidance is clear and children should only be sent to school if it is absolutely necessary. Wherever possible children should be at home to minimise the risk of exposure to the virus. If parents’ work is critical to the coronavirus response, their children will be prioritised for early years and education provision.

Work packs have been sent home with every child and there are links and additional ideas in the class pages area of the website.
