Guidance about schools

Children and young people in England:

  • are at a very low risk and rate of severe illness from current variants – the benefits of them being in an education setting continues to significantly outweigh the COVID-19 health risks
  • will no longer be in bubbles or be required to self-isolate if they’ve been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19
  • should stay at home if they have any of the main COVID-19 symptoms and return to school when well enough
