Education provides updated guidance on COVID-19 measures for after Easter

Share this page

Wednesday 06 April 2022

Education has provided updated guidance for schools on COVID-19 mitigations that will be in place after the upcoming Easter holidays.

These represent a further relaxation of some of the measures that have been in place.

When education returns after the Easter holidays, there will be no routine surveillance testing taking place across settings. Students and staff are still encouraged to take an LFT if they are symptomatic (if the first test is negative, please stay at home and repeat after 24 hours), or if they are the household contact of a positive case (please LFT for seven days). Non-household contacts do not need to test unless symptomatic. This aligns with the wider community guidance now in place.

However, all students and staff are asked to take an LFT the day before they return to schools after Easter and another on the day of return.

Further measures in place after Easter include:

Education has also provided guidance on exams, as GCSE, A-Level and IB examinations will start after Easter.

Students will not be required to test prior to each exam. However, students should continue to have access to LFTs in case they become symptomatic.  If a student has symptoms but feels well enough to take an exam, they should take a lateral flow test. If negative they can sit their exam but are asked to please notify a relevant teacher. Students testing positive will not be allowed to attend exams, and support will be available to arrange an alternative.
