Covid-19

Welcome to our online Covid-19 resource centre. We are creating and compiling information and resources to support our pupils and their families during the Covid-19 pandemic. If you see anything that you think we should share, please contact us.

We have developed a Covid 19 ‘Catch-up Strategy’. It details what we intend to support to support pupils to recover any losses as a result of Covid 19. Our strategy has our pupils at its heart and is fully costed for the year ahead. You can see our draft C19 Catch Up Strategy here.

The health, safety and well-being of our whole school community is paramount. We take the management of risk seriously and have developed a detailed whole school risk assessment for COVID-19. In addition, we work with parents and pupils to develop individual risk assessments where required.

Our staff have been working hard with our parents and pupils to develop information that is helpful and will guide our practice during Covid-19. You can find the combined guidance here St Giles Covid Operational Guide v1
