Child abuse, neglect and sexualised behaviour


Primary, secondary schools and colleges will remain open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers.

All other children will learn remotely until February half term.

Early Years settings remain open.

See the coronavirus help and support page.

Apply for your child’s primary school place: If your child was born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017, then they are due to start primary school in September 2021. Don’t miss the deadline on 15 January 2021. If you miss the deadline you are much less likely to get the school you want.

If you believe a child is:

  • being abused or neglected or at risk of being abused, or
  • they behave in a sexualised way not normal for a child

Please follow the advice on our Worried about a child page.
