The Northern Territory’s (NT) back to school plan

The Northern Territory’s (NT) back-to-school plan is aligned to the national approach underpinned by the following six principles:

  • Schools are first to open and last to close. Face-to-face learning is a priority
  • COVID-safe behaviours will be practiced at all times
  • No vulnerable child or child of an essential worker will be turned away
  • Managing COVID-19 cases will be informed by public health advice
  • Schools and early childhood services will be equipped with public health advice
  • The health and wellbeing of our children and staff is our top priority.
