DfE latest update
The DfE recognises the significant benefits of educational visits for children’s educational development as well as their mental health and wellbeing and is taking steps to allow children to enjoy visits in line with the government’s roadmap. The roadmap sets out when the Government will move to the next step, based on four tests. For that reason, all dates are indicative and subject to change. Advice will be updated in line with the roadmap.
Domestic residential educational visits: In line with the roadmap, the DfE advises against domestic residential educational visits until at least step 3, no earlier than 17th May. For existing bookings, should step 3 commence as planned, you may undertake domestic residential education visits, that are already booked, no earlier than 17th May. For new bookings, schools may begin planning for new domestic residential educational visits to take place. Should step 3 commence as planned, new visits will be possible from no earlier than 17th May. Schools are advised not to enter into any new financial or contractual commitments at this stage. The DfE is working with Public Health England and the sector on what Covid-19 secure residential visits will look like at step 3, and further advice will be provided.
