COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update 24th April 2020: new Bereavement Guidance, new CAMHS Resources and more

Dear colleagues,


To keep you all up-to-date with the latest information on Coronavirus (COVID-19), and help protect yourself and others, we will be issuing regular updates.


This update is larger than usual, and contains new Bereavement Guidance that has been developed by the Local Authority, and CAMHS Resources to support the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children.


This update also includes a letter from the Secretary of State for Education, and an announcement from the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.  There is also further information regarding Finance Guidance, the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, Temporarily Extending 2 year old Free Early Education Entitlements Eligibility, Updated Early Years Guidance, and VotesforSchools.


We expect the update from the DfE regarding how to access the digital devices and remote education resources to come through imminently - as soon as we receive any update, we will forward this on.
