Following progression to the next step of the Government roadmap on 17 May 2021, and updated guidance issued to schools on 10 May, the Corporate Health and Safety Team have reviewed and updated a number of model risk assessments to take account of these changes (to come into effect on 17 May). Headteachers should review and update their own school specific risk assessments as appropriate:
• COVID19 – School Risk Assessment – Template (version 6.2) – changes incorporated from amendments made to School Operating Guidelines during Covid and the next key roadmap date of 17 May. The key changes were covered verbally at the Locality Drop in session on 13 May – see briefing note.
• Covid19 – Face Coverings – Model Risk Assessment (version 5.0) – incorporates changes relating to the wearing of face coverings by pupils/staff in school as documented in the School Operating Guidelines and Face Coverings in Education.
• NEW Transfer Day Model Risk Assessment – this new model assessment has been developed at the request of Headteachers in relation to planning for transfer/taster days. Please read the note at top of risk assessment; also to be read in conjunction with the briefing document referred to above and the updated health and safety FAQ document.
