DfE Guidance on temporary changes: attendance recording for educational settings whilst closed due to the coronavirus
We have put together key information and resources for schools to help maintain provision during the COVID-19 situation.
3. Model school personnel and finance policies
Model administrative policies are a resource on Webshop. They are available to schools buying services.

Health and safety
The Health & Safety Policy should always reflect the procedures currently in operation and if local procedures have changed in a specific area due to Covid-19, the policy should be updated. For example, if first aid arrangements have changed due to a lack of paediatric first aiders on site, then the health and safety policy should reflect that.
If you wish to include a specific paragraph on Covid-19, please add this section to your school's local policy:
“Covid-19 - The school regularly reviews the government guidance on COVID 19 and ensures that policies, procedures and risk assessments are in place. A school specific risk assessment on COVID 19 has been undertaken and has been approved by the governing body. This risk assessment is regularly reviewed and is available to staff on (insert location of where staff can view the document). The school will keep staff updated on any changes to the risk assessment or associated policies/procedures.”
The updated model policy can be found on the Webshop.
