The government have issued guidance on Tiers of school closure in the event of a local outbreak of Covid-19. There is a summary below and you can find full guidance here.

  • Tier 1: Secondary schools will remain open to all students, however, additional measures to mitigate spread of the virus will become mandatory, e.g. wearing of face coverings.
  • Tier 2: Secondary schools move to a rota model, combining on-site provision with remote education. This is likely to be a two-week rota model. They continue to be open for vulnerable young people and the children of critical workers. 
  • Tier 3: Secondary schools will be open for vulnerable young people and the children of critical workers and selected cohorts, as directed by the DfE. All other students will work remotely.
  • Tier 4: Secondary schools are only open for vulnerable young people and the children of critical workers. All other students will work remotely.
