Schools will be a safe place for children to go to learn if their parents need to return to work, or the children cannot learn via distance.
Physical attendance at school is voluntary. If it is possible, children should remain home and learn via distance. The restrictions on the numbers of children are necessary due to the need for physical distancing, transport constraints, and limited resources. The limits also help reduce the risk.
Children, young people and staff who are at greater risk are encouraged to stay at home. Any child, young person or staff member who is sick should remain at home.
