New government guidance says schools can use remote education for pupils off with infectious illnesses and to ‘reintegrate’ some absent children back into school.

Non-statutory guidance on remote education has been updated today by the Department for Education (DfE). The guidance was first published during Covid, when schools were closed for most pupils.

It comes ahead of planned strikes by teacher members of the National Education Union in February and March with schools likely to use remote learning in the face of partial closures.
