Dear Members,

At 5pm this evening the DfE (England) released ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for boarding schools with international students’. Please click here to view the guidance.

This guidance is for owners and managers of boarding schools in England. It contains advice on the collection, transfer and isolation of students aged under 18 entering the UK and travelling to a named boarding school or a named household.

It covers guidance on:

  • what to do when students arrive in the UK
  • travel corridors
  • the first 14 days in the UK
  • after the first 14 days in the UK
  • what to do if students in residential settings develop coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms.

A full round-up will be circulated in tomorrow’s weekly newsletter.

Best wishes

Robin Fletcher
Chief Executive, BSA and BSA Group
