Cheshire East Council has responded to the prime minister's announcement of tougher Covid restrictions, by recognising that the lockdown is needed as a national response to the rapid spread of Covid-19.
These new measures mean that schools and colleges across Cheshire East are now closed to most pupils except for vulnerable children and children of critical workers and are unlikely to reopen until after the February half term at the earliest.
Schools will move to remote learning and will ensure pupils and parents have a timetable outlining what to expect as soon as possible. Vulnerable children are encouraged to continue to attend school as safety measures remain in place. The reduced number of pupils should further ease any risks and enable appropriate support to be provided.Everyone will still be able to access early years settings such as nurseries.
