Plashet School Covid-19 Update

Monday 23rd March 2020

The Prime Minister and Education Secretary announced on Wednesday 18th March that all schools will be closed from the end of the day on Friday 20th March 2020 until further notice for all children except to those of key workers, those with Education & Health Care Plans and those assigned a Social Worker.

It is not compulsory for these groups of children to attend school.

If students can be left at home safely because there is adequate care or they are  old and responsible enough this is what should happen.

The point of schools only being open for these children is to reduce the spread of Covid-19 and protect lives.
