Who can still go to school, college or early years providers?

Schools, colleges and Early Years Providers (pre-schools, nurseries and child-minders) are now closed, other than for vulnerable students and children of essential workers who will be able to attend their normal setting. 

Children and Young people with special educational needs who usually attend SEND Schools will also be able to attend their schools, if parents wish to send them.  This includes Le Rondin, Le Murier, Les Voies and the CIAS bases. Guernsey College of Further Education will be working with parents of students with special educational needs to ensure that they are supported appropriately. 

All students of parents not defined as essential workers, or vulnerable students, will be required to stay at home.

For children to continue to attend school, college or early years during this period it is important to note that BOTH parents (unless single parent household) MUST be essential workers. The only exception is where one parent is a nurse, doctor, other key health or care worker, teaching staff, or staff essential to supporting the States of Guernsey’s response to COVID-19, whose child(ren) will be able to attend school, college or early years even if the other parent does not fall into the essential worker category.
