ABCD
1
Unacceptable Risk>7School should “balance and minimise any risks from coronavirus (COVID-19) with providing a full educational experience for children and young people.”. We need to implement “sensible and proportionate control measures which follow the health and safety hierarchy of control to reduce the risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level.”
2
Moderate Risk4 - 6
3
Risks are tolerable < 4
4
5
Core Principles: staff need to:
1) Look to provide a full curriculum and good quality teaching and learning
2) Make themselves aware of the guidance and risk assessment
3) Use professional judgement and 'common sense'

27
Bubbles StudentsThe concept of bubbles/groups is to recognize that keep social distance is not always possible. The guidance says that can be year groups, classes and even a whole school. Depending on context. We are proposing:
Year 7 -11 in year group bubbles as far as possible
6th form bubble
ARK bubble
Enterprise Bubble
4
28
Movement around school
KS3
Year 7,8,9 have minimal movement.
They will largely be based in one classroom and teachers will move to them
Science experiments will be videos etc
Due to the issuse with lack of changing due to building work there will be no core PE
2
29
Movement around school KS4The combined numbers of KS4 is less than many schools year groups.
We will therefore encourage students to maintain distancing around school but recognise that there will be some interaction
4We have considered significant changes to the curriculum. However the government recognises that this is probematic. We could not reduce bubble size without significantly restricted the timetable and we would struggle to meet students needs in core.
30
KS5Will remain in 6th form as far as possible. Teachers will come to them as far as possible
31
Social distancingStudents encouraged to distance:
Marking on floors
Posters
Guidance
Students remain in year groups bubbles as far as possible

35
EquipmentStudents encouraged to bring in equipement, where equipment is shared wipe between year groups
Text books, use visualisers or digital version wherever possible
Or books allocated to one bubble only

36
staff to staff transmission
37
Staff distancingStaff should retain a 2m distance with students and other staff. Brief passing in the corridor etc is low risk. It may be appropiate to consider a small group of staff as a bubble.
Staff need to pre-aprove this with the headteacher
