We're ready for school again

Back to school image

Our campaign began yesterday to encourage East Sussex parents to send their children back to school when classes resume in September. 

The campaign includes adverts on local radio, on the side of buses, at bus stops, on social media and on banners outside schools.   

Under the catchline 'We are ready', the campaign aims to reassure parents and carers of all that has been done to make schools safe and ready to resume pupils' education. 

The campaign stresses that children are at very low risk of becoming ill with Covid-19, that schools will work with parents to meet their concerns and it encourages families to walk or cycle to school where possible.
