Advice for parents

From Monday 31 August face coverings should be worn by staff and pupils in schools when:

  • adults and young people in secondary schools (including special schools) are moving about the school in corridors and confined communal areas (including toilets), where physical distancing is particularly difficult to maintain;

  • adults, young people and children aged 5 and over are travelling on dedicated school transport.

Children, young people and their carers and many people will be feeling anxious about the current situation and the impact that it may have on the health and wellbeing of family, friends and colleagues.

The pdf icon Supporting Children Interactive Leaflet [268kb] and the links below provide some advice and guidance:

Each week, we will also provide useful information to support you with home learning:
