New Schools Guidance

New schools and ELC guidance has been published – Routine Covid Protection Measures in Schools and Routine Covid Protection Measures in early learning and childcare, school age childcare and childminding settings  

All updated guidance will come into force at the same time as the asymptomatic testing programme comes to a close – i.e. from 18th April. In some local authority areas, this will mean after schools return from their April break if they are not open on the 18th. Should there be any changes to infection rates in specific areas there will still be capacity for local public health interventions and localised measures.  This means that school and ELC guidance will be in line with measures for other workplaces.  

School Support Statistics

Some useful statistics on selected categories of school support staff have been published – it outlines numbers for pupil support assistants, home-school link workers, behaviour support staff, educational psychologists, school nurses and library staff.
