School is the best place for children to be.
With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, children and young people are now able to enjoy more freedom in their education.
Being at school or college keeps children’s education on track, so they can achieve their full potential, while also benefitting their mental and physical health and wellbeing.
We are doing everything we can to ensure children and young people can continue to attend school and college.
All high schools in the borough are being encouraged to do regular on-site testing for pupils and staff, with primary schools also being asked to test staff regularly.
We are also encouraging parents of primary-aged children to do twice-weekly testing.
School will feel different as COVID-19 measures are relaxed:
Attendance is mandatory. The benefit of attending school continues to significantly outweigh the COVID-19 health risk to children. If you have concerns, you should discuss these with your school and us so that your child is able to continue attending school.
