Risk Assessment For Return To School September 2020
1st September: Letters from Swindon BC
Support and Guidance for September 2020 School Opening
This document aims to support schools and parents in alleviating unnecessary anxiety about the return to School for all pupils in September. The rationale behind this work is to provide a one stop document, created by collating information from various articles that have been directed at educational settings over the last 5months.
There are 5 key areas that have been covered, these include:
  • Understanding Coronavirus
  • The basic principles of preventing the spread of Coronavirus.
  • Government guidance to support school opening in September.
  • Guidance for infection prevention and procedures to follow.
  • Extra Resources and support for staff and students

From Public Health Department
I'd like to thank you for supporting all the changes that schools have had to make due to COVID-19 and to thank the schools themselves for doing everything they can to protect children, parents, carers and staff. It’s not easy but it is up to all of us to stop the spread of the virus, and keep everyone safe.
29th May 2020: Wellbeing Newsletter - May 2020
Emotional health is just as important as physical health, and both can be severely compromised during these unsettling times. Self-care is more important than ever; we are often the last person we think about and look after.
It’s so important during these unprecedented times to enable us to be as resilient as possible for ourselves, and also to manage and alleviate our children’s worries and to provide them with much needed reassurance.
With this in mind, as we move towards schools re-opening, we wanted to outline our guiding principles for how to move forward through this transition as smoothly as possible...

19th May 2020: Arrangements for return to school on (or after) 1st June
Dear parents and carers, For many of you, the decision to send your child back to school when we re-open (likely to be 1st June but we will confirm when the Government tell us) is very difficult. This is completely understandable. Many of us are in two minds as we are concerned about the education our children are missing and also worried about the mental well-being of the children as they miss their social groups. I am not a doctor or a scientist and therefore I can only tell you that with input from my valued colleagues, I have created what I believe to be a comprehensive risk assessment. We have worked hard to put in place procedures that we hope will protect your children from risk as much as possible.

Risk Assessment For Return To School
12th May 2020
Dear parents and carers,
We are really excited about the prospect of our school coming back to life with lots of children in again but it is really important for us all to recognise that this is something that needs to take place with a great deal of caution and forward thinking.
At the moment, for us in school, there is no change to the guidance. We will continue to provide care for children of those parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response and only those who cannot safely be cared for at home (please see full list below).

Dear parents and carers,
I hope this letter find you all well.
Following the Government’s announcement yesterday which outlined a ‘road map’ exit plan, I know you will all have lots of questions about children returning to school. Mr Johnson said that children in years R,1 and 6 may return after 1st June but that additional guidance would be given this week. Please allow us some time to ensure we have all the right information and to make plans and trust that we will deliver this information to you as soon as it is clear. Read the full letter
