Increasing figures in coronavirus cases create a tendency to new lockdown rules and restrictions. Seven schools in Great Manchester are planning to have an early holiday for Christmas to protect the health of both the students and their families.
It is expected that the schools will be closed on December 11, instead of the planning date that is on December 18. The schools are planning to give homework or online lessons in order to minimize the effect of coronavirus on education.
Seven schools have already announced that they will give an early holiday that is one week earlier. The list of schools is here :
- Lyndhurst Primary, Oldham
- Coppice Primary Academy, Oldham
- Roundthorn Primary Academy, Oldham
- Deeplish Primary Academy, Rochdale
- Manor Green Primary Academy, Denton, Tameside
- Old Trafford Community Academy, Trafford
- Freehold Community Primary, Oldham
Due to increasing coronavirus cases, it is expected that more schools will announce the same decision. Focus Trust’s chief executive Helen Rowland said: “We recognize the short notice may be an issue for some families but we hope that by taking the proactive and practical approach of extending the break, we can ensure that no one is forced to self-isolate over the holiday because of someone they have come into contact with at school.”
