Student needs analysis

Staff have considered associated risk based on the individual needs of students and groups of students in relation to the use of PPE within school / class

Social Distancing 1 – Movement around school

A one way system will be made clear to staff and students around school so that any movement around school will minimize the chance of students and staff coming into contact with each other. This will be clearly marked with floor graphics to indicate direction of travel.

Social Distancing 2 – In Class

Staff and students to adhere two metre social distancing rules where possible.

Tables / Chairs can be spaced appropriately by class staff wherever possible.

Access to PPE

All staff will have access to FFP2 Face Masks in their PPE lockers and personalised visors.

Full PPE (vizors, gloves, masks, aprons) must be worn when helping with intimate care or medical procedures.

At all other times all staff have the option to bring their own clean mask into school if they so wish,

However, the wearing of masks will not be compulsory unless a specific risk assessment deems it necessary for the groups below to wear a medical mask

  • Adults aged 60 or over,
  • Adults with any underlying health condition.
  • BAME adults
  • Pregnant staff until 28 weeks (any staff pregnant beyond 28 weeks will not be accessing the school site

PPE will be available to ALL staff within school. Prior to the start of day sufficient PPE will be placed in all class bases used with students. Should additional PPE be required then staff members can request additional items. Staff can request further PPE by email (Fix it system).

Quantity of PPE – Stock

All PPE stock is Government recommended and quality assured.

Use of PPE

ALL staff within school have read and understood the instructions regarding the safe use of PPE to include ‘putting on’ and ‘taking off – including disposal’ This will ensure that staff and students remain protected if PPE is required.

Handwashing and Hand sanitiser

Students and staff will need to wash hands at the start of each day with soap and water. This will be repeated throughout the day and especially at breaktime, lunchtime and end of day. Each class will also have access to hand sanitiser stations were we do not have water access.

Bathroom Support

Staff including care teams will have full access to PPE and must follow guidelines on use when supporting students with care needs and bathroom.

Student / Staff Illness

In the event of staff / students developing symptoms and becoming ill during the school day they will be isolated from others outside. Any staff coming into contact with these people MUST wear full PPE in line with Govt Guidelines. Please see and follow separate flowchart.

In the event the classroom needs to be deep cleaned, an alternative venue / classroom will be timetabled.
