COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation and the Department’s highest priority.

We are working closely with colleagues across Government to ensure that all appropriate arrangements, and support, are in place for all Department for Education sectors – from early years and childcare, schools and children’s social care – and for vulnerable groups including children with long-term medical conditions.

Schools should continue to support their pupils’ health needs as normal and let staff and parents know that there is NHS guidance available at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public.
