Coronavirus (COVID-19): schools and learning


Primary and secondary schools are closed. All schools will provide remote learning.

Face-to-face learning in schools remains in place for:

  • children of critical workers and vulnerable children
  • nurseries and early years
  • special, alternative provision and hospital schools

School attendance and absence

We have a duty to ensure registered pupils attend school regularly. If your child does not go to the school where they are registered, we can take legal action against you.

GOV.UK has more on what legal action could be taken against you.
