With the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK continuing, it is understandable that schools and parents are concerned about the welfare of their pupils. 

Current guidance from the DfE and Public Health England (PHE) remains that schools stay open; however, schools should plan for the potential for a closure - this includes taking the necessary steps to ensure parents are informed of the closure and that the effect on pupils' education is limited. As such, we have created a letter template for schools to inform parents that the school may be required to close in the future.

The document has been created in line with the advice provided from the government and DfE for schools and the general public to minimise any spread of infection.

As every school is different, this template is fully amendable to suit the individual circumstances of each school.
