Updated 21 July 2020


Updated guidance includes:


  • content from the planning guide for early years and childcare settings so that all coronavirus (COVID-19) information for early years settings is in one place - the planning guide has now been removed
  • an autumn funding update and hyperlink to updated local authority guidance
  • updated information on wraparound care
  • updated information on managing requests for site visits from parents and carers for admissions in September
  • updated information about data collection changes
  • updated information about reporting to Ofsted when there is a confirmed case of coronavirus in a setting
  • updated information to reflect the removal of the requirement to keep children in small, consistent groups within settings but still minimising mixing where possible
