Children Affected by Flooding

If you have a school-age child who has been affected or displaced by the recent flooding, and may be missing education - please let us know.

Cumbria County Council is supporting families to return children back to education as soon as possible. In some circumstances we may be ale to arrange temporary transport to a child's existing place of education or for children to temporarily attend an alternative school.
