Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for Parents and Childcare and Schools Information

Many parents and carers will have concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have pulled together some key sources of information that we hope you will find helpful. 

Please visit our webpage to find childcare during COVID-19, the page is frequently updated and has the most up-to-date information. 

All schools in Doncaster are now open to children of key workers, vulnerable children and children in the specific year groups set out by the Government. If your child requires a school place, please contact your child's school directly to discuss this. For all the latest guidance and advice on the schools reopening please go to information about schools reopening.
