What educational settings need to know when making decisions on cluster or hub models, during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. 



This guidance is under review following the Prime Minister’s announcement of 28 May. We will publish updated information as soon as possible.

This guidance is for state-funded and independent schools, academy trusts, early years and childcare providers, colleges, other education providers and local authorities.

Cluster and hub models refer to the grouping of schools and settings in order to offer continued provision for the children of critical workers and vulnerable children.
