For people concerned about children attending educational settings; we understand and sympathise with the concerns around children attending school at this time, especially if a household has extremely vulnerable members.  As a practice we are very sorry, but decisions about children attending school are not ours to make.  It’s not something that we can help with.  We would suggest a discussion between the people involved and the school to decide on the best course of action.
