UPDATE TO GUIDANCE FOR PARENTS Update: 19 March 2021
The DfE has updated its guidance on what parents need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges during Covid-19. This now includes information on returning to boarding school from overseas, including arrangements for pupils to quarantine on arrival in the UK. It also provides additional information to support parents considering elective home education for their child.
The government has also published a collection of guidance providing information for parents and carers of children attending early years settings, schools and colleges during the pandemic. This brings together information and guidance for parents on:
- essential information for the spring term
- Covid testing
- clubs and out-of-school settings
- homeschooling and remote education
- support for children and young people
