Following Government guidelines, Brooklands plans that all children, in all year groups, will return to school full time from the beginning of the autumn term.
Scientific evidence now informs us that coronavirus (COVID-19) presents a much lower risk to children than adults of them becoming severely ill and there is no evidence that children transmit the disease any more than adults. Of course, there will still be risks whilst COVID-19 remains in the community, and therefore schools have been be asked to put in place a range of protective measures.
In order to effectively manage the risks that remain, things will be a bit different when children return to school for the new academic year. Our guidance sets out some of the changes and protective measures the government is asking schools to put in place and what parents, carers and children will need to do to help ensure schools are as safe as possible for everyone.
More information about the specific measures to be put in place are detailed in our Risk Assessment.
