COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update: Attendance Coding, Closures & School Meals

Dear Colleagues,

To keep you all up-to-date with the latest information on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and help protect you and others, we will be issuing regular updates.

This update covers a range of areas, including attendance coding, closures, and school meals.

At this time, the majority of schools in Havering remain open, albeit some may have had to make the difficult decision to send certain year groups home.  It is critical that the Local Authority maintains an overview of the status of our schools, so with immediate effect, can I ask that all schools provide a daily update as to whether they remain open, have had to close certain year groups, or have had to fully close. Can this information please be emailed to schooladmissions@havering.gov.uk by 10am each day. 

Thank you all in advance for providing this vital information and for all that you are doing to continue to provide an educational offer to the families in Havering at this incredibly challenging time.


As you will appreciate, this is a rapidly evolving area and this guidance is correct as at the time of publication.






Keep up-to-date with advice and guidance regarding this issue here
