Following the Government's advice, if it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.
Everyone has their own individual circumstances and we would like to support you where we can.
However, we are also mindful of the additional guidance that has been published by the government today about maintaining educational provision during this very difficult time.
The fewer children making journeys, the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk.
Can I just reiterate that where possible the safest place for your children is at home.
