Guidance on risk assessments and contingency planning

The DfE has shared guidance for schools and settings for this term, including what the definition and an ‘outbreak’ is and the process to follow if this occurs.

The DfE webinar that explains the expectations can be accessed on the document sharing platform titled ‘Ref RP158 preparing for autumn term’

Any feedback on the DfE guidance should be directed to james.crane@education.gov.uk

A new Risk Assessment template has been put together for schools and settings, which is in the same format but far shorter than previous ones.  This should make it easy to complete. Any concerns, please contact nina.bickerton@suffolk.gov.uk
