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.
We have now completed the new dedicated COVID-19 information area on the HES portal, where all communications and updates from the Local Authority and central government relating to COVID-19 will be organised. All early years providers and schools can access this area by using the following link: http://hes.org.uk/Page/17045
Following the PM’s announcement at the weekend regarding the planned re-opening of education provisions, the DfE has issued a number of guidance documents. This means that this update is larger than usual and includes further information regarding Re-opening of Schools and Early Years Providers, Implementing Protective Measures in Education and Childcare Settings, Actions for Education and Childcare Settings to Prepare for Wider Opening, Covid-19 Secure Guidance, Coronavirus Outbreak FAQs, Information for Parents and Carers, and Covid-19 Testing.
