Dear Parent(s) and Carer(s)
As you know, England has entered a third national lockdown and Primary and Secondary schools have closed for everyone except the children of critical workers and vulnerable children. We would expect all vulnerable children to attend school. For all others the best action for you to take for your child, yourself and the whole community is to keep your child at home if it is safe to do so. You may have already had communication from your school and we thought it would be helpful to provide the view of the Local Authority.
We continue to be vigilant in Wakefield and to encourage everyone to follow the national guidance. The infection rate increased to 285 per 100,000 and continues to rise. We must all continue to follow the lockdown rules to help NHS Hospitals to continue to function for all of us. In time vaccinations will provide us all with hope but we must remain strong and determined at this point in time.
