Who this is for

This advice is for organisations and their staff working in local authority, independent and grant-aided schools, other education and childcare settings who are providing care to those groups of children described in the Education provision chapter.

The aim of this advice is to support implementation of measures to reduce spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) within the educational setting. These measures are described in detail in the HPS guidance for non-healthcare settings. Please always check the online guidance on the HPS website for further advice.

This advice will be updated as the situation evolves, further guidance for local authority, independent and grant-aided residential special schools will be published as soon as possible.
