Step 4 of the Roadmap from 19th July 2021:
In light of the decision taken by the Government to have ‘Freedom Day’ and on further guidance provided by the DFE, Learn Sheffield and Sheffield City Council we can announce that we will begin our new procedures from the start of school in September. As the country moves to Step 4 of the roadmap, the government will continue to manage the risk of serious illness from the spread of the virus. This marks a new phase in the government’s response to the pandemic, moving away from stringent restrictions on everyone’s day-to-day lives, towards advising people on how to protect themselves and others, alongside targeted interventions to reduce risk. As COVID-19 becomes a virus that we learn to live with, there is now an imperative to reduce the disruption to children and young people’s education - particularly given that the direct clinical risks to children are extremely low, and every adult has been offered a first vaccine and the opportunity for two doses by mid-September.
