Coronavirus - advice for parents and carers from the Department for Education

Parents and carers should not be unduly worried about the possibility of their children catching the Coronavirus. There is no reason why children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as planned.

What action can you 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 in to a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.
