The Trust has worked with its partners across the sector both within the local authorities and nationally. This is not statutory but guidance to align with work you are already doing. All of the strategies contained within the toolkit are not prescriptive; some will suit individual schools more than others. As you know, we know that every school has its own unique context and there is no ‘one-size’ solution. The Toolkit may not answer every question that you have but it provides a starting point for schools to commence their planning. It offers prompts to aid leaders’ thinking on difficult issues such as the practical management of social distancing and hygiene routines as well as thoughts about the organisation of learning. It can be revisited as you and your teams adjust their plans during the national journey towards the new ‘normality’.
This is the place where we will place all documentation and the latest versions of any relevant guidance. All materials are available in Word format (contact if required) and can be taken as a starting point, edited, adapted and personalised for your settings. If you require further assistance with forms, groups or adaptation guidance please contact us. We will alert you to any updates and additions to the toolkit. As you know if there are any specific issues, do not hesitate to contact the team. There are also wellbeing resources (videos, documents, links and contact details) available here Trust Wellbeing page.
