The new guidance, published on 24 March, acknowledges that social distancing measures will be “harder” to implement among young children, but it advises staggering lunch times and break times, keeping class sizes as small as possible and not allowing parents
to gather at the school gates while dropping off or collecting children.
Gavin Williamson, the education secretary, said: “In order to help keep them and their pupils safe, we have issued tailored guidance for schools and education settings on social distancing and other hygiene measures. It offers practical advice to schools,
like staggering break times and the movement of pupils around schools.
“We will provide further guidance for special settings, and continue to work with the sector to ensure schools get all the support they need.”
