COVID-19 Risk Reduction

On re-opening in September 2020, all school activities were carefully risk assessed to ensure the health and safety of pupils, staff and families. Each time guidance changed, the Risk Assessment was updated and the document was regularly reviewed by the Headteacher and Chair of Governors. It was also shared with staff and governors at regular intervals, and they were given the opportunity to comments and make suggestions. 

During the period up to the end of summer term 2021, the school had no positive cases of Covid-19 within the staff or pupil body, therefore, there were no bubble closures and no child missed any school days as a result.  

COVID-19 Risk Assessment 2020 - 2021

In response to the removal of Covid-19 restrictions in July and August 2021, schools are now required to produce a Covid-19 Outbreak Management Plan, which identifies steps that may be taken in the event of an outbreak of Covid-19. These steps are outlined in the document below.
