Updated DfE guidance for parents & carers

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”

Reverend Dr Martin Luther King, Jr

The Department of Education have updated their guidance on what parents and carers need to know about schools and other education settings during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak to include information on the curriculum, after school activities, repeating a year for pupils, transport and keeping children safe online.

They have also amended information on whether it is compulsory to send pupils to educational settings and education for children at home.
