The COVID Symptom Study for School Communities

The COVID Symptom Study is a not-for-profit initiative run by health science company Zoe with scientific analysis provided by King’s College London, endorsed by the UK, Welsh and Scottish Governments. It includes a COVID Symptom Study for School Communities.  Getting involved in this has the following benefits:

  • schools receive daily Covid insights for their students that enable more informed and rapid decision-making to help keep them safe;
  • information is shared with children and their parents, reassuring parents and helping children to complete their education safely;
  • the data contributes to critical national scientific research into the impact of COVID on children and younger people.

We have updated OEAP National Guidance document 4.4k Coronavirus to include information about the study, including how you can join.
