Advice on the coronavirus for places of education

Information about Coronavirus

As you undoubtably will be aware, the government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad.

The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However we understand that people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from Half term holidays and/or school trips abroad.

Please see below an update from the Chief Medical Officer for England for travellers returning to the UK from specific areas affected by COVID-19:

Advice for parents/guardians

You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus

There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal.


What action you can take?

A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus.

Please help to support the campaign which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses. This information is highlighted in a useful poster:
