Guidance from HPS and the NHS
The Health Protection Scotland (HPS) guidance we circulated yesterday https://www.hps.scot.nhs.uk/web-resources-container/covid-19-guidance-to-educational-settings/ is a key source of advice for all schools and educational settings including early learning and childcare settings.
It is essential that the HPS guidance is disseminated to headteachers and the
managers of all childcare settings, and that you ensure that the key messages from the guidance are actively communicated to parents, carers, children and young people.
Pupils and parents will look to their school or childcare provider for guidance on how they will respond and manage the risk of COVID-19 infections so it is important that they are directed to the HPS advice.
