Whilst organisations accross a variety of sectors are busy struggling to make continuity plans to manage the impact of the COVID-19 virus, the Department for Education and Public Health England have released guidance for education settings.
A link for the guidance is HERE.
This guidance will assist schools and other educational settings in providing advice for pupils, students, staff and parents or carers regarding:
- the novel coronavirus, COVID-19
- how to help prevent spread of all respiratory infections including COVID-19
- what to do if someone confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19 has been in a school or other educational setting
- what advice to give to individuals who have travelled to specified countries and areas within the last 14 days
They also provide a poster to accompany the guidance which can be downloaded, printed and displayed in settings. It is aimed at parents, carers, students, headteachers, teaching and support team staff.
