Educational settings are now closed, except for children who are vulnerable and the children of critical workers.
This guidance is to support schools which are still open to care for this smaller number of pupils. It will assist schools and other educational settings in providing advice for pupils, students, staff and parents or carers regarding:
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
This guidance is of a general nature and should be treated as a guide, and in the event of any conflict between any applicable legislation (including the health and safety legislation) and this guidance, the applicable legislation shall prevail.
