The action plan can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-action-plan
The document includes:

· the role the public can play in supporting this response, now and in the future
Current advice remains in place: No school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by Public Health England.
The importance of hygiene
Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.
Please help us in sharing simple and effective hand hygiene messages.

Coronavirus : STC Action Plan
Letter from the Owner
Dear Parents and Carers,
As things currently stand, it’s business as usual at Swindon Tuition Centre with no reported cases of coronavirus and things still running smoothly.
Whilst it is likely that schools will close within the next few days or weeks, it is all the more important to keep providing education for our children whilst also being sensible about the current situation.
Be rest assured that we will continue to provide sessions as long as it’s deemed safe to do so.
The health of our students and tutors is top priority, so with the following measures put in to place, we will continue to provide quality education at the centres during this time:
All staff and students will be asked about their wellbeing on arrival
Temperature testing available with adult consent
Sanitising hand gel will be available for all staff and students
Every desk will be cleaned thoroughly after each session
Additional general cleaning of both centres arranged
Be assured our learning rooms are spacious, non air conditioned and are occupied by a maximum of four students at a time. This is a massive reduction in ratio in comparison to a school setting.
Tuition to be offered via Skype/Zoom video conferencing on request for all those who are choosing to self-isolate (4 days notice required).
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us, and look out for further updates via email and our Facebook page.
Owner, Swindon Tuition Centre
Business as Usual at Swindon Tuition Centre
Dear Parents and Carers,
Alternative Provision: Info for parents and providers
Be rest assured, should the government decide to close schools, we can insure that pupils attending our alternative provision services will continue to receive our tuition service via home learning packs, online tuition sites and Skype/Zoom conferencing. Lesson plans will be updated as usual and tutors will also be instructed to check in on pupil's wellbeing for safeguarding purposes.
