Latest Covid Guidance for Cambridgeshire

Latest News

Following the Government’s announcement on Jan 4th that we are returning to a Tier 5 lockdown, you can find the latest general information here.

Cambridgeshire’s schools will, like all schools, be expected to open to those who are ‘vulnerable’ and those who are children of ‘critical workers’ – the list has been updated and is on the Government’s Covid update page. Schools are expected to again carry out risk assessments for children who are vulnerable and to involve parent carers in the decisions made.

Children who would usually receive Free School Meals will continue to do so whilst schools are closed or if they cannot/do not attend.  Schools will make arrangements directly with families.
