SCHOOL CLOSURE: Although we remain open on an emergency basis, we would like to remind parents / carers of the direct guidance schools have received. Parents should keep their children at home, wherever possible, to enable schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. The most recent scientific advice on how to limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should in order to limit the chance of the virus spreading. The fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.
