Plans unveiled for the reopening of schools

Mon, 25 Jan 2021

Plans for the reopening of all schools on the Island will step up a gear this week.

Schools closed on Thursday 7 January, except for 14 educational hubs maintained for vulnerable children and those of essential workers.

This week, local hubs will be created at all primary schools to deliver a smooth transition ahead of the planned return of all children on Monday 1 February.

Parents allowed to return to work this week due to the easing of restrictions, are reminded that they are not automatically classed as essential workers and are asked to keep their children home wherever possible for the rest of this week, as many hubs remain at capacity.

From Thursday 28 January, children who currently attend a primary hub, will be required to return to their usual school where they will continue to be taught in bubbles and provided with meals.

All secondary hubs will continue to operate as they are now until the end of the week.

School bus services will return to normal from Monday 1 February.
