Colour coded school Plan

As we make plans to open school to some year groups it is important that we all adhere to the social distancing rules in place at this difficult time. Here is an overview of the latest government guidelines regarding Covid-19:


At the moment:

  • You can spend time outdoors, including private gardens and other outdoor spaces, in groups of up to six people from different households, following social distancing guidelines
  • You should go to work if you cannot work from home and your business has not been required to close by law
  • Some shops are beginning to reopen, with a plan for more to do so later in the month
  • You can be tested as part of the test and trace programme, which will enable us to return to normal life as soon as possible, by helping to control transmission risks
