COVID-19 - CORONAVIRUS
As the country has moved to Step 4 of the roadmap, the government continues to manage the risk of serious illness from the spread of the virus. This marks a new phase in the government’s response to the pandemic, moving away from stringent restrictions on everyone’s day-to-day lives, towards advising people on how to protect themselves and others, alongside targeted interventions to reduce risk. As COVID-19 becomes a virus that we learn to live with, there is now an imperative to reduce the disruption to children and young people’s education - particularly given that the direct clinical risks to children are extremely low, and every adult has been offered two doses of the vaccine.
Our priority is to deliver face-to-face, high-quality education to all pupils. The evidence is clear that being out of education causes significant harm to educational attainment, life chances, mental and physical health.
This Uffington Plan details how Uffington School will:
- plan to balance and reduce any risks from coronavirus with providing a full educational experience for its pupils
- detail how the school will respond to any confirmed cases of coronavirus within the school community
This document covers the following areas:
- School Operations including Infection Control
- Outbreak Management Planning in case of self-isolation of multiple pupils or staff or local outbreaks
- Curriculum, Behaviour and Pastoral Support
Information about the school's measures to control the spread of infection and provide remote learning may be found by clicking on the links below.
