COVID-19 - Information and Guidelines

The official guidelines regarding COVID-19 are being updated daily. You can view the latest HM Government and NHS advice here:


You can also contact the Department for Education Coronavirus Helpline for answers about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

  • By phone: 0800 046 8687 (please call 111 if you think you or your child might have symptoms of COVID-19, or have travelled to affected countries)
  • By email:
    The helpline is open from 8am until 6pm Monday to Friday.


Please note that school staff are not medically qualified and are not therefore in a position to give advice on the decisions facing individual families.  We strongly encourage parents to see their own medical advice if needed.

Vyners School will send all parents and staff an email when we have an update regarding the school and COVID-19. The latest update is available to view at the bottom of the page.

If your child is self-isolating, please contact the school absence line to inform us, stating clearly that this is the reason for absence.

If you have any concerns, please email
