The UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy

The government has published its roadmap for how and when the UK will adjust its response to the coronavirus outbreak. This document describes the progress the UK has made to date in tackling the coronavirus outbreak and sets out the plans for moving to the next phase of its response to the virus.

The roadmap can be found here:

Safeguarding Guidance for Schools

On Friday 27th March, the government published safeguarding guidance for schools, colleges and other providers. Whilst Keeping Children Safe in Schools remains the key statutory document for schools, the DfE have issued interim guidance during the coronavirus outbreak.  This can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-safeguarding-in-schools-colleges-and-other-providers/coronavirus-covid-19-safeguarding-in-schools-colleges-and-other-providers

In addition, guidance for families on supporting children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing has been provided.  This can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-supporting-children-and-young-peoples-mental-health-and-wellbeing/guidance-for-parents-and-carers-on-supporting-children-and-young-peoples-mental-health-and-wellbeing-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak

There is also a children’s guide to coronavirus which aims to answer children’s questions about coronavirus, tell children how to stay safe and protect other people and how to help them make the best of their time at home.  This can be found at

THE IMPORTANCE OF HYGIENE 

Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.  

Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and hot water 

In addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing,  everyone  should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.
