On Thursday 18th March 2020, the Government announced all schools in England will close except for children of key workers and vulnerable children from Monday 23rd March.


Key workers

Parents should keep their children at home, wherever possible and that they’ve asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.


Do you fall into one of the categories below? If so, please respond to the questionnaire you will have received via parenthub.

Key sector will include:

  • Health and social care

  • ​Education and childcare

  • Armed Forces

  • Key public services​

  • Local and national government​

  • Food and other necessary good​

  • Public safety and national security​

  • Transport​

  • Utilities, communications and financial services​



It was also confirmed on Thursday 18th March 2020 that we will not go ahead with assessments or exams. Further information issued by Ofqual can be found here.



On Monday 16th March 2020, the Government introduced new guidance on whole household isolation in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

  • if you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started


  • if you live with others and you are the first in the household to have symptoms of coronavirus, then you must stay at home for 7 days, but all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. 


  • for anyone else in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period


  • it is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community


  • if you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period. If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible


The symptoms are:
