The advice still being given currently is that schools should not close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless directed to do so by Public Health England.
The advice also states that we are to continue life as normal and to make sure everyone carries out the basic hygiene rules to stop the spread of any virus.
A new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education has been launched. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:
Phone: 0800 046 8687
