Herefordshire Council has launched a ‘Back To School Safely’ campaign for schools, colleges and early years settings, in line with the Government’s national campaign. The campaign aims to reassure children, families and school staff that safety measures are in place ready for their return.
The government is expecting every child to go back to school in September. Returning to school is extremely important for all children because education is a fundamental part of their development.
We’re encouraging parents and carers to talk to their child about how school or college will be different in September to help to ease their anxiety. We’ve created a special Back to school page on our website, which provides information on the safety measures that will be in place in schools, what to do if a child experiences COVID-19 symptoms and details of the support available for children and young people’s mental wellbeing.
Additional information for parents and carers about children returning to school can be viewed on the Government website as part of their #backtoschoolsafely campaign, which will be regularly updated. You can also follow #backtoschoolsafely on social media for the latest updates.
The latest advice on Herefordshire’s school transport can found on our school transport pages.
