DFE LogoGuidance for full opening - schools is now available here.

It is the DfE's plan that all pupils, in all year groups, will return to school full-time from the beginning of the autumn term.

This guidance is intended to support schools, both mainstream and alternative provision, to prepare for this.  It applies to primary, secondary (including sixth forms), infant, junior, middle, upper, school-based nurseries and boarding schools.  We expect independent schools to follow the control measures set out in this document in the same way as state-funded schools.  The guidance also covers expectations for children with special educational needs and disability (SEND), including those with education, health and care plans, in mainstream schools.

Separate guidance is available for early yearsfurther education colleges and for special schools.
