Coronavirus – Advice for all early years providers, schools and further education providers
 
The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad. 
The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However we understand that people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from or visiting China.
Public Health England and the Foreign Office have issued advice for anyone travelling to the area. This can be found at:

Advice for parents/guardians
 
You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus. 
There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal. 
We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice via the link above.
