Health, safety & wellbeing

The health, safety and wellbeing of all staff and pupils is of utmost importance to us. We've provided you with a framework to assess and manage the risks associated with coronavirus (COVID-19). This is to give all staff, parents and pupils the assurance that appropriate control measures are being put in place in response to coronavirus (COVID-19). It reflects current Government guidance. We look at all the relevant government guidance in developing our approach, so not just the education guidance; for example the guidance for offices will be incorporated for staff offices and staff rooms.

We expect all local authority maintained schools to use the following documents. Schools that are not maintained by the local authority may use them for help and guidance, if they wish.

As the national response to the pandemic continues to change and evolve as does the guidance. We therefore recommend you keep an eye out for updates and new documents on a regular basis. We will indicate next to documents when updates have occurred and all documents will give a summary of what has changed in the introduction.

Compliance code and core risk assessment
