About the Webinar

On the 24th March, the DfE released guidance for school staff and those continuing to deliver educational provision around how they can limit the spread of coronavirus and implement social distancing.

The guidance defines the criteria concerning vulnerable children and critical workers, as well as outlining what staff with underlying health conditions should be doing. Essential advice on the measures that schools should take to lower the risk of contracting coronavirus and ensuring children and staff are kept safe is also explained.

In this video update, Stefan Fusenich a qualified inspector and DfE Advanced Teaching and Learning Coach, will discuss the recently published guidance, what this means for education settings and how they can implement a joint approach towards social distancing alongside parents and pupils themselves.
