Coronavirus (COVID-19): School and Early Learning Closures – Guidance About Key Workers and Vulnerable Children.

Guidance setting out the childcare and learning provision is expected for key workers and vulnerable children during closures
of school and early learning and childcare (ELC) settings to deal with the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Overview

This sets out what critical childcare and learning provision we expect to be made available to the children of key workers and
vulnerable children during closures of school and day care of children services (including early learning and childcare
settings (ELC), to deal with the coronavirus outbreak.

Closure of school and day care of children services is an important part of the efforts to protect public health – if we all do
the right things now, we will reduce the impact of the virus and save lives.

Local authorities have been asked to keep opening of physical settings to the minimum required. If we don’t, we face many
more people than would otherwise be the case becoming ill and dying, and we risk our NHS being overwhelmed.
