Our schools are taking immediate action as soon as it's known a pupil or member of staff has tested positive for Covid-19.
The process of testing and contact tracing is part of the ‘new normal’ and where schools follow these guidelines carefully, there is no cause for alarm.
Pupils over 11 years old will be required to wear face coverings on school transport and in school indoor communal areas where social distancing cannot be maintained, unless they have a medical exemption.
Please continue to visit our Newsroom for the latest information. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Financial support is available to help cover the cost of tuition fees and students' living costs while they are studying at College or University. There are also a number of charitable trust funds available to which you or your child/ren may be eligible to apply.
