The Government has not issued such guidance to schools and multi-academy trusts as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

However, to help nurseries and schools to plan, prepare and adapt existing spaces for the return of more children, the Department published a range of detailed guidance on how to implement protective measures. The guidance can be found at the following GOV.UK link:

https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-for-schools-and-other-educational-settings.

This includes the main protective measures guidance, which can be found directly here:
