From education to employment

New study by Public Health England on transmission in schools

Responding to a new study by Public Health England (@PHE_uk) on transmission in schools. 

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said:


“The education and care of our children is a national priority. Ahead of the full return of all pupils to school in September, we are continuing to do everything in our power to ensure all children can be back in their classrooms safely, as this is the best place for them to be for their education, development and wellbeing.


“We have always been and will continue to be guided by the best scientific and medical advice. The latest research which is expected to be published later this year – one of the largest studies on the coronavirus in schools in the world – makes it clear there is little evidence that the virus is transmitted at school.


“There is also growing confidence among parents about their children returning. This is down to the hard work of school staff across the country who are putting in place a range of protective measures to prepare to welcome back all pupils at the start of term.”
