Colleges, primary and secondary schools are now open to all pupils.
Please be assured that we and the Government are confident the benefits of being back in school far outweigh the very low risk the current levels of the virus in the community pose for the vast majority of children. It's vital for all children to return to school to minimise the longer-term impact of the pandemic on education, wellbeing and wider development
From 8 March school attendance is mandatory for all pupils.
If you have concerns about your child returning, please get in touch with your child’s school. They will be happy to discuss any concerns and provide additional reassurance on the measures being put in place to reduce any risks.
