With Christmas fast approaching we are doing everything we can to minimise risks to your children in school. This is to try to avoid the need for any of us to have to self-isolate over the Christmas period, which I am sure none of us would want. Please accept this as a polite reminder that during this second lockdown period, households must not mix unless it is to facilitate childcare with one other bubble. I have copied the Government advice just as a reminder about when we can leave home. I think with us all working together we can do our bit to reduce the risk of transmission! Thank you for your cooperation!

1. Stay at home
You must not leave or be outside of your home unless where permitted by law. This may include:
Work and volunteering
You can leave home for work purposes, or to provide voluntary or charitable services, where you cannot do this from home.
You can leave home to buy things at shops which are permitted to open. For instance to buy food or medicine, or to collect any items - including food or drink - ordered through click-and-collect or as a takeaway, to obtain or deposit money (e.g. from a bank or post office), or to access critical public services (see section below).
Fulfilling legal obligations
You may also leave home to fulfil legal obligations.
You may leave home to carry out activities related to buying, selling, letting or renting a residential property.
Education and childcare
You can leave home for education. This includes schools, universities or formal education provision.
You cannot leave home for extracurricular classes or training such as music or drama tuition.
You cannot leave home for driving lessons.
You can also leave home for registered childcare and supervised activities for children that are necessary to allow parents or carers to work, seek work, or undertake education or training.
Parents can still take their children to school, and continue existing arrangements for contact with children where they live apart.
