Covid 19 Risk Assessment
What will the school day / lessons look like?
- Staff will choose which lessons/activities will be delivered and plan outdoor lessons, where possible. The normal curriculum will be suspended.
- Toys and equipment should not be used by other groups and should be cleaned between groups.
- Unnecessary items in classrooms should be removed and stored elsewhere in the school.
- Remove all soft furnishings, toys and soft toys that cannot easily be cleaned every day.
- Limit children/staff taking things home and then back to school. (Reading books etc)
- Don’t share stationery or resources. Shared areas and surfaces need cleaning daily, and disinfected/bleached frequently
How will children be dropped off and collected?
- Stagger drop-off and collection times – children to arrive/ be collected at different times.
- Drop-off and collection times – protocols for adult to adult contact needs to be minimal. A plan needs to be in place for meeting/collection points and timings for each group.
- Parents / Carers will not come into school.

- Encourage children to cycle or walk to school.
Health and Safety Precautions
- Updated risk assessments need to be done by the school prior to opening.
- Hand sanitiser in all classrooms.

Potential Risk of Infection
- If anyone has a cough/temperature/feels unwell at school, they must be sent home. They will need to self-isolate for 14 days, or until tested negative.
- If a child or adult shows symptoms and tests positive for CoVid-19, then the whole group that the children was in must be sent home and they must self-isolate for 14 days.
- If other cases are then also confirmed at the school, then PHE will advise the HT/school on next steps/possible closure.
