On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April. Most of the COVID-19 specific guidance for education and childcare settings will now be withdrawn from GOV.​UK. 

Guidance specific to education and childcare that settings should now refer to includes: 

UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) health protection in education and childcare settings

DfE emergency planning and response

DfE good estate management for schools

New and updated UKHSA guidance for the general population, which will also be relevant to education and childcare settings, includes: 

guidance for people with symptoms of a respiratory infection including COVID-19, or a positive test result for COVID-19

living safely with respiratory infections, including COVID-19

ventilation of indoor spaces to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory infections

COVID-19 guidance for people whose immune system means they are at higher risk

We also wanted to draw your attention to the education staff wellbeing charter, which is a declaration of support for, and set of commitments to, the wellbeing and mental health of everyone working in education. The charter is co-created with the education sector and sets out the shared commitments to promote and protect the wellbeing of staff.
