COVID-19 Risk Assessment
(Last Updated on 01/09/21)
Following an announcement by the Prime Minister, the Government have published a set of guides (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19) to help employers, employees and the self-employed understand how to work safely during the coronavirus pandemic. One of the key requirements in these guides is the need for employers to carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment – and the requirement of employers with over 50 workers to publish the results of these risk assessments online (and encourages all employers to publish their assessments, irrespective of their number of workers). As a result, please find below, a copy of our most recent risk assessment. This is a key document and one our SLT and Governing Body spend considerable time putting today, amending and enhancing. This is the latest version (version 15) and this will be reviewed again on Friday 1st October 2021. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us – we will be more than happy to help!
This risk assessment is a live, working document. That means that we are constantly tweaking, amending and evaluating what we do so that we keep everyone as safe as possible. We are always looking at ways to improve and we really do value the input of our parent body. If you have any suggestions about how we can make life safer for our whole school community, please do get in touch.
