School closures update

We're working with the Department for Education, schools, and early years settings across York to set out a plan for our children’s education in the coming months. We supporting all schools, early years and childcare providers, parents, carers and families, following the government's announcement that ‘every child who can be safely cared for at home, should be’. See the latest school closures information from GOV.UK.

Current school closures

Due to COVID-19 schools are only open for vulnerable children, and children of key workers, when staff numbers can facilitate the need. If you're the parent/carer of an eligible pupil, contact your child’s school to make them aware of your needs, so they can make suitable arrangements and book a place for your child at their school, or at the school providing places.

Schools are informing us:

  • when they're closed because there's no provision required for that day
  • when staff shortages mean a local alternative is being provided (school will inform you of any changes)

When we're notified of school closures, we'll update the details on this page. You can also follow School Services on Twitter for updates.
