I posted on here earlier, so my boys have just recently started to be home educated before there was any talk of school closures. So they have been home educated until a school with places could be found closer to our new address. Only one space has been found and now I am worrying about accepting it because I know at the moment the boys are not ill I am concerned sending one to school and then catching something (more Covid) as I care for dad who has blood cancer and my mother in law with underlying health conditions. I am worried if something now brought home as I am doing all the caring for my dad and mother in law. I am wondering am I in a position to turn down the offer at the moment or if I accept it will I be made to send 1 of the boys to school while they try and find a space for the rest or appeal for a space in the same school.

So I am looking for advice

  1. Do I accept the offer and see what the chance of self isolating is at the moment ?

2. I work from home with my business so I am around to home educate until we can send them when I won't be caring for my dad and mother I. Law.
