Planning for post lockdown return to school

The Government has asked that from June:

  • secondary schools, sixth form, and further education colleges to begin some face to face support with year 10 and 12 pupils, although we do not expect these pupils to return on a full-time basis at this stage
  • all schools and childcare providers to continue to offer places to the priority groups – vulnerable children and children of critical workers – they have been supporting since the end of March

We are currently planning to open our doors to some students again during June and will provide parents and carers with more detail in due course.

The Government has produced a series of guidance documents for schools and parents which can be found using the links below.
