Coronavirus – Advice for all early years providers, schools and further education providers The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad. The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However we understand that people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from or visiting China. Public Health England has issued tailored guidance for education settings, which you can find at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19 Public Health England and the Foreign Office have issued advice for anyone travelling to the area. This can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/china https://www.gov.uk/government/news/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-and-avian-flu-advice-for-travel-to-china Latest information and advice can also be found at: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus Please share this guidance with your staff and cascade as appropriate. Advice for parents/guardians You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus. There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal. We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice via the link above. What action you can take A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus. Please help to support the campaign which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.

If you purchase contracts after that date then we cannot guarantee that staff will be available. Please make your core contract purchases ASAP. Ad-hoc Services These are not required to be purchased by a specific date, however they are currently available at 2019/ 2020 prices and will continue to be available at those prices until 01/04/2020 where new prices will take effect.
