COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update 3rd July 2020: Guidance for Full Opening from the Autumn Term, Coronavirus Webcast, and Parent/Carer Information

Dear Colleagues, To keep you all up-to-date with the latest information on Coronavirus (COVID-19), and help protect yourself and others, we will be issuing regular updates. The dedicated COVID-19 information area on the HES portal contains all communications and updates from the Local Authority and central government relating to COVID-19. All early years providers and schools can access this area by using the following link: http://hes.org.uk/covid19. This update includes further information regarding the Guidance for Full Opening from the Autumn Term, Coronavirus Webcast, and Parent/Carer information. I expect that many of you have been working your way through the DfE guidance issued yesterday, and there can be no doubt that a full return to school will create significant challenges. We know from the preparations for the wider opening at the beginning of June, that school leaders provided support to each other, generously sharing their plans and ideas. To support those preparations, you will recall that the Local Authority hosted a series of meetings for each Primary cluster, and for secondary schools - we are intending to repeat that approach before the end of term to support that sharing of practice and approaches – more details will follow next week. Take care, Trevor
