Welsh Government have developed a framework document in partnership with schools, Local Authorities, public health experts and other stakeholders setting out the actions schools should take to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.
Therefore, when schools returned in September 2021, many of the more severe measures that were in place prior to the summer break were relaxed as part of a proportionate system of controls determined by local risk levels associated with Covid-19.
However, there is still a need to do everything reasonably practicable to ensure health, safety and welfare of individuals, hence, certain measures including risk assessments, hygiene, ventilation and preventing attendance by individuals with Covid-19 symptoms continue to be in place. Additional measures are implemented as and when required, based on advice and guidance from Welsh Government and Public Health.
Please see below for ‘Schools Frequently Asked Questions’ (FAQs) which contains further information in relation to lateral flow testing and other useful information.
