The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced on 14 June that he was not able to say that we have met all four tests for proceeding with Step 4 and thinks it is sensible to wait just a little longer. This will give time for the vaccination programme to protect people from the virus in light of the new variant.
We will therefore keep our current protective measures in place until there is a further announcement on Step 4 of the roadmap. These measures in education settings will remain in place to help reduce transmission of the virus.
We view the safety of all as paramount.
The school risk assessment outlines how we will manage controls and procedures to ensure the safety and welfare of everyone in school.
The risk assessment belongs to all and is regularly updated and amended in response to government guidance and suggestions from staff, children and the wider community.
The latest updates outline a) the management of the introduction of rapid asymptomatic Coronavirus testing b) responding to the new variant, changes to Coronavirus symptoms and the way we will address the issue of increasing numbers of children in school.
