School closures

Updated Thursday 26 March 2020

Information on school closures in London Borough of Tower Hamlets

As announced on Wednesday 18 March, schools in England have been closed from Monday 23 March, except for the children of key workers and vulnerable children, until further notice.

If it is possible for a child to be at home, then they should be. Do not rely on childcare from those who should be socially distancing themselves, ie grandparents and family, friends or others with underlying health conditions.

If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a key worker then education provision will be available to them.

Schools remain safe places for children but the fewer children who are in school the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable people in wider society.

For further information read government advice to parents and carers about the closure of schools and other educational settings following the outbreak of coronavirus.

You can also read our latest news and information about schools.
