Encouraging children's return to school

Schools and academies across Norfolk are looking forward to welcoming back thousands of children and young people from Monday 8 March.

Norfolk’s 422 schools are well practised in their range of extra hygiene and safety measures to support pupils’ safe return to the classroom, including one-way systems, staggered start times, regular testing for school staff, and extra cleaning to help protect children and teachers.

And these measures have been boosted by new testing regimes for students in secondary schools and further education colleges and the ongoing national vaccination programme, which is immunising thousands of people each week.
