Corona Virus (COVID-19)
Taken from DfE publication What parents and carers need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges during COVID-19
"From 19 July the government continues to manage the risk of serious illness from the spread of the virus. This marks a new phase in the government’s response to the pandemic, moving away from stringent restrictions on everyone’s day-to-day lives, towards advising people on how to protect themselves and others, alongside targeted interventions to reduce risk.
As COVID-19 becomes a virus that we learn to live with, there is now an imperative to reduce the disruption to children and young people’s education - particularly given that the direct clinical risks to children are extremely low, and every adult has been offered a first vaccine and the opportunity for 2 doses by mid-September."

The whole world is talking about the corona virus. Schools have closed, and children are asking a lot of questions.
