Information on school closures in Portsmouth

The Government has taken the decision that all schools will be closed indefinitely from Friday 20 March as part of its measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19).

Schools will be in contact with parents and carers to inform them about the steps they need to take to protect and support themselves and their families. Please check your school’s website for information. You can find contact details for infant, junior and primary schools, and secondary schools.

Children are being encouraged to keep learning, to keep healthy and to fill their time productively and schools will inform parents of any arrangements made to enable access to learning materials while the school is closed. We are working on ways to ensure that free school meals can still be provided for those who are affected.
