We all know how challenging this last year has been. So the news that children are returning to school and ELC settings like nurseries will probably have been a huge relief. But there is a risk that it could cause an increase in people getting the virus. So here are 5 important things you can do to make sure this doesn’t happen, and to help our nurseries and schools stay open.
Wear your face covering at all times when you’re dropping your children at nursery or school and when you’re picking them up.
Only one parent at a time should do drop offs and pickups.
Stay 1 metre from other parents at the gates and avoid travelling to and from school in groups with others.
Don’t car share with other households and limit using public transport if you can.
