Coronavirus / COVID-19: Guidance for Educational Settings

Public Health England has produced guidance to assist schools and other educational settings in providing advice for pupils, students, staff and parents or carers regarding:


  • the novel coronavirus, COVID-19,

  • how to help prevent spread of all respiratory infections including COVID-19,

  • what to do if someone confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19 has been in a school or other educational setting, and

  • What advice to give to individuals who have travelled from specified countries or areas within the last 14 days, including school trips

There is a poster which accompanies the guidance which should be downloaded, printed and displayed in all education settings. It is aimed at parents, carers, students, headteachers, teaching and support team staff.

It is also recommended that Schools and education establishments review their Critical Incident Policy and ensure that the 'incident contingency plan' has been shared with all members of staff so that all are clear about roles and responsibilities should an incident occur.
