We are encouraging staff and students to download the NHS COVID-19 App to help control the spread of the virus.
NHS Covid-19 instructs users to self-isolate for 14 days if it detects they were nearby someone who has the virus.
It also has a check-in scanner to alert owners if a venue they have visited is found to be an outbreak hotspot.
Staff and students aged 16 and over are able to install the app on to their smartphone.
The App is now available at www.covid19.nhs.uk and the usual app stores.
There is more information about how the app is used in education settings on the following link from the Department for Education ‘Use of the NHS COVID-19 app in schools and further education colleges’
