Coronavirus information for schools and parents

Linked childcare households

Following the new Government guidance for Cheshire East being a High-Risk Area (Tier 2), schools may be dealing with enquiries about Grandparents picking children up from schools. Households with a child under 13 years old are allowed to link with another household if:

  • neither household is linked with another household
  • all adult members of the household agree

The arrangement would need to stop when the children are over the age of 13. Once the linked household arrangement stops neither household can join with another household.

Schools should confirm with parents where a Linked Childcare Household has been established in accordance with the guidance so that grandparents can continue to drop off and collect pupils.
