Returning to schools, colleges and early years settings - guidance for parents and carers
As we prepare to increase our provision in school, whenever that might be, we have been working collectively with headteachers to prepare guidance and practical help. The key consideration to remember is that any phased return to school is conditional. Headteachers need to decide the steps that need to be taken to ensure that children, young people and staff are kept safe and well and that parents have confidence in the plans.
The resources here will help you understand how the phased return to school will happen and answer some of your questions.
