About the Webinar

On the 11th May, the DfE released their guidance for schools, colleges and early years providers on what actions they need to take to ensure they are ready for reopening on 1st June.

The guidance provides detailed information on the next steps schools should take in preparation for the first phase of wider reopening and covers the priority issues that schools are likely to encounter during implementation.

It also signposts their supplementary guidance ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19): implementing protective measures in education and childcare settings’ which explores how schools should ensure effective risk and infection control and the measures they should take both before and after reopening.

In this video update John Rees, an experienced teacher, trainer and consultant with more than 25 years educational leadership experience, will discuss what guidance documents mean for schools and colleges and how they will be expected to adhere to government policy around COVID-19 within their educational setting.

Disclaimer: Due to the nature of the current climate and in light of ongoing government policy review, please continue to check the latest DfE guidance on COVID-19 here.
