Public Health England have issued translations of their comprehensive stay at home guidance for anyone with symptoms of coronavirus. This also applies to anyone who is asymptomatic but is waiting for results of a PCR test.
The Department for Education have published a policy paper on the National Tutoring Programme (NTP), a scheme started in 2020 to provide support for pupils and students most affected by disruption to their education as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Further information about the programme can be found on the NTP website.
The Department for Education has now updated its guidance to reflect recent changes in provision for free school meals to some groups of NRPF migrants previously excluded. These include families:
- Refused asylum but in receipt of section 4 support
- Granted leave to remain as ‘Zambrano carers’
- Granted leave to remain under Article 8 ECHR
- Supported under section 17 Children Act 1989 and who have ‘no recourse to public funds’.

Training and Research
The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Race Equalities Network has launched a free package of online racial inequalities training.
The aim of the training is to educate and raise awareness of the ongoing racial injustice and everyday discrimination faced by colleagues from ethnic minorities across our diverse communities.
The voices and experiences of the Race Equality Network members from ethnic minorities have shaped the purpose and content of the training.
