An urgent letter has been published to parents from Steve Reddy (Director of Children's Services and Matt Ashton (Director of Public Health)
Please follow the link to the parent letter page:
The key message:
"To reduce community transmission, we need to ensure that the number of children and young people accessing the offer of provision in a school or college is kept to the lowest number possible. Therefore, in line with updated government guidance issued on Friday, even if you are a critical worker, if your child(ren) can remain at home rather than attend school, on some or all days, then they should. Please only use the offer of provision when it is crucial for you to undertake your critical role."
