The DfE announced on 28 April that it had decided to cancel all in year further education and apprenticeship releases and will publish the end of year releases normally in November. Concerns were raised about this announcement to stop publishing the monthly start figures, see here for details.
Subsequently however, on 30 April, the DfE has now announced that “replacing the remaining in-year dates enables us to provide releases with more relevant information to cover the period affected by the pandemic. We intend to make headline statistics such as apprenticeship starts available on a regular basis, and to similar timescales to those currently, but we intend to repurpose our releases to focus on the most relevant information available”. Comment on the new announcement can be read here.

You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus.
Public Health England and the Foreign Office have issued advice for anyone travelling to the area. This can be found at:
