Frequently asked questions

Why have you closed?

The government has taken the decision to close all schools across England because of the situation with coronavirus (COVID-19).

When will school be open again?

The government has not given a date for this. The situation will be kept under review and we will update our website and social media pages as soon as we get further information.

What is going to happen to my child?

Most children will be given work to do at home from their normal school. Your school will be in touch to provide further information of how that will be delivered, e.g. learning packs, online-learning.

If your child belongs to one of the vulnerable groups, they will have the opportunity to attend a school in your local community.

Who are the vulnerable groups?

They are:

  • children who are known to Social Services
  • children with an Education, Health and Care Plan
  • children whose parents are required to work as they have been identified as key workers


However, if your child falls into one of these categories, BUT has complex health needs then you should follow Public Health England advice about social distancing. If you have any concerns, please contact your school or Bradford Council’s children’s services on 01274 435600 for advice.
