Offsite education support and guidance


Schools, colleges and education settings can find information and resources, including links to DfE guidance to support provision during the Covid-19 pandemic.


The government has removed restrictions on offsite educational visits.  It is important however that you seek financial assurance when booking with providers and tour operators. 

If you are travelling overseas you need to refer to the countries FCO advice re entry requirements, check with your insurers on the cover in place and have a clear contingency plan.
