I don't want my child to attend

The Government have been quite clear in that it is up to each family to decide whether or not children should attend although unless you have members of your family who may be self isolating, are clinically vulnerable or extremely clinically vulnerable where you should follow medical advice, you should make every effort for your child to attend. That said parents and carers will not be fined for non-attendance at this time and schools will not be held to account for attendance levels. Registers will still be taken on a daily basis and it is important that you tell us if your child is not attending and the reason for this.
