For the vast majority of children and young people, school building will close tonight and not reopen for the forseeable future.
Taking up a place at school during this time of wider closure is the offer of a last resort, for the minority of key workers, who have no alternative.
These places will be for childcare only and not for education.
If we cannot provide enough staff to support these children the school will close completely.
Please keep yourselves and others safe.
