Latest advice from Department for Education (23.09.2020):

Further coronavirus (COVID-19) measures announced by the Prime Minister

Yesterday, the Prime Minister announced further national measures to address the rising cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in England. These measures will begin to come into force from Thursday onwards. It is vital that children and young people continue to receive an education, therefore, schools, colleges and universities will remain open.

Full details of the new measures and when they come into force can be found in the guidance on what has changed: 22 September. We are reviewing our guidance, in particular on the rule of six, to understand where further clarity is needed on how it applies in education settings, such as group indoor sports in further education colleges and universities.

We continue to follow government guidelines, and all users of the building are asked to take the recommended precautions. Current advice from the Department for Education (DfE) is that schools stay open and children attend. Should there be any change in this, or should there be an occurrence of Covid-19 within the school community, we will of course inform parents and carers immediately. In the event of school closure, we will also inform all parents and carers of how work will be provided. For further information, please visit
