​ Preparations for schools to reopen in September

It's still the school summer holidays, but teachers and staff have been working hard to implement the necessary steps so they can welcome all pupils back safely in the autumn term, in line with government advice.

It is important to note that not everyone may be asked to return on the first day of term. Some schools might ask pupils to return one year group or a class at a time so that they can get used to any new arrangements. All children should have been given a return date within the first two weeks of term, though there may be a few exceptional cases.

Your school will have told you about the plans they have made for pupils to return, either by contacting you directly or publishing the information on their website.

Parents can find out more information about how schools are making their preparations online. There is also guidance for parents, which sets out some of the changes and protective measures the government is asking schools and colleges to put in place, and about what parents, carers, children and young people will need to do to help ensure schools and colleges are as safe as possible for everyone.

Parents of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) should also refer to the separate guidance for full opening of special schools and other specialist settings.

If you have concerns about your child returning to school or college, because you consider they may have other risk factors, please do not hesitate to discuss with your school or college.
