Providers and Refunds

Many providers are now making promises of refunds or postponement if a visit cannot go ahead as a result of Covid-19, which will hopefully encourage establishments to begin planning again for educational visits.  Where a promise has been made, you are encouraged to check that the promise is included in the terms and conditions of the contract and/or insurance policy.  We have updated National Guidance documents 3.2i Contracts and Waivers, 4.4c Insurance and 4.4k Coronavirus to draw attention to this.

We have also amended 4.4k Coronavirus to increase the prominence of the reasons why you should be encouraging more of your learning to take place outdoors during the pandemic, and to add more details about the current restrictions on school sport.
