Friday 20 March 2020 - School Closure Information and Government guidance

It is important to underline that schools remain safe places for children. But 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.
IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU NOTIFY US IF YOUR CHILD WILL NEED TO ATTEND SCHOOL OVER THE COMING WEEKS BECAUSE THEY ARE VULNERABLE OR YOUR WORK IS CRITICAL.

Please read the criteria below carefully.  If you meet the criteria, please email cas-enquiries.tcs@cset.co.uk or telephone 01454 862100. You will need to give us the following information:
1. Your child’s name and year group.
2. If your child is vulnerable, the reasons below that apply to them or if your work is critical to the Covid-19 response, details of your job role.
3. When you are expecting your child to attend school, or that they may do so in the future.
