Important Coronavirus Information

On Saturday 31 October the Prime Minister announced New National Restrictions, which came into force on Thursday 5 November.

The government continues to prioritise the wellbeing and long-term futures of our children and will not be closing early years settings. It remains very important for children to attend, to support their wellbeing and education and help working parents and guardians.

Please see: Sending your child to an early years setting in autumn 2020 for a range of frequently asked questions.
