We know how important it is to stay as cool as possible during the heat of summer. It is especially so for those in vulnerable groups such as people with health conditions, older people and young children.

This Beat the Heat poster is a useful quick reminder on what to do in very hot weather.

Read this guidance for teachers and professionals on looking after children and those in early years settings during heatwaves.

See Public Health England's Heatwave Plan for England for more information.

Visit Met Office Heat-health watch to see the latest heatwave warnings and don't forget to keep an eye on the weather forecast too - the summer isn't over yet!
