Schools and childcare


At this point our school buildings are closed to most pupils, except children of key workers and those who are most vulnerable. The majority of our children and young people are now remote learning from home (see the Remote Learning page for further advice and information). Special schools are open to all pupils because they are all classed as vulnerable.

For general information on schools, please see our main schools page for more information.

The latest information on school transport arrangements can be found here.

Check to see if you child(ren) is/are entitled to free school meals or clothing grants.

For the latest news about free school meals, please click on the ‘Coronavirus – money & benefits updates’ box at the top of the free school meals or clothing grants page.

We are also taking applications for this year's Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA). This is a weekly payment of £30 for young people who are planning to continue in post-compulsory education from August 2020. Please click here for more information.
