Assessment conducted by: Senior Management Team & Site Manger
Date of assessment: 28/02/21
Review interval: Daily
Date of next review: Ongoing
The purpose of this risk assessment is to ensure that the risks from Covid-19 continue to be managed effectively to help protect our staff, pupils, and the rest of the school community during the pandemic. We understand that we are legally required to think about the risks staff and pupils face and do everything reasonably practicable to minimize these risks.
All year groups up to and including Year 6 should return to face-to-face education on 8th March. If required, year groups from Year 7 – Year 11 may undergo a phased return of pupils in the week commencing 8th March to allow for testing that week.
We understand that we have a legal duty to consult with staff on health and safety in good time. We may also involve pupils and parents in some discussions to help them understand the measures that are being put in place. We will share the risk assessment with staff and publish it on our website to provide transparency for pupils and parents – HSE expects all employers with over 50 staff to do this.
The SMT and site manager have paid strict attention to the DfE’s ‘Actions for schools during the coronavirus outbreak’ to inform the decisions on what control measures should be implemented.
Please note: This risk assessment is a live document which is reviewed and updated in line with changes to government guidance and public health advice. Staff and parents will be notified by ParentMail of any changes to this risk assessment. The school website will also be updated.
