10th November 2020New guidance for parents and carers – with some key position statements for schools communicating with them


The DfE has published new guidance for parents and carers, setting out what they need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges in the autumn term. This document is an official and useful basis upon which trusts and schools can build communications and answer key questions. Some of the detail here is an essential source for website and communication Q & A for parents during this new lockdown period.


It covers:


– Attendance issues

– Where pupils should isolate

– Shielding 

– Face coverings

– Transport

– Curriculum 

– Exams

– Ofsted and more.


The guidance also sets out for parents and carers what actions they should take in the event a child or family member tests positive for or shows symptoms of COVID19. Again, this is useful and official text for sharing as appropriate.
