Covid-19 Update

News Release

Tuesday 21 April 2020

Our priority is to minimise the risks for our staff, partners and those involved in our work everywhere.

To this extent, we have introduced a range of measures to help us continue operating safely across all parts of the organisation, based on the latest Government advice. This includes changes to our internal ways of working, project delivery and our engagement with schools.

We are currently not conducting any fieldwork or data collection activities.

Despite some schools and teachers wishing to maintain their involvement in key projects, we have been mindful of not adding to their burden during this unprecedented period. We will be exploring a phased approach to invite participation for new or postponed projects over the coming weeks and months.

We are extremely grateful to our partners and customers for their commitment and adaptability in helping us respond to these circumstances. The action taken already has minimised risks associated with the safety of everyone involved in our work.

Given the fast moving nature of this situation, we will continue to regularly review the latest Government advice and react accordingly.

We hope that you, your family and those close to you stay safe during this difficult time.
