Return to school resources

The following resources support the return to school and education.

Controlling and minimising gathering at school gates

Transport colleagues have produced wraparound signage reminding people to socially distance and these will be put up around all schools.  Early years providers are welcome to use the signage.

FAQ website for parents/carers in preparation for autumn term

We have created a website to reassure parents and carers and to help answer questions they may have about their children returning to school – this area will be key to reinforce the message that school is best place for them to be.


The e-Bug coronavirus (COVID-19) website contains free resources for schools, including materials to encourage good hand and respiratory hygiene.

Lenny and Lucy return to school – free publication

Beyond Worlds are publishing a wordless story to help children returning to school. The free resource - Lenny and Lucy return to school has been developed to support the children in your care to settle back into their daily school routine, help children make sense of their experiences, communicate their feelings and prepare for more change as they go back to the classroom.
