Advice for current times

On Demand

Andrew Hammond, Senior Director of Learning at Discovery Education and Guy Dudley, Lead Author of the Advice Hub within the NAHT Discovery Education Pathway programme, discussed the current COVID-19 impact on schools and how those working in schools or from home, can catch up on those stretching (and sometimes overlooked) tasks whilst COVID-19 restrictions continue to prevail.

In a quiz-style, question and answer format, we covered COVID-19 related issues and the overall impact on schools:

  • Vulnerable children and children of key workers
  • Remote learning
  • Section 44 (Employment Rights Act, 1996) explained
  • Safety issues
  • Staffing issues
  • Ofsted and other performance data

In the same format, we also covered those tasks that can be reviewed as long as COVID-19 restrictions prevail:

  • School website
  • GDPR
  • Asbestos in schools
  • Health & Safety
  • Review of school policies (e.g. Wellbeing)
  • Review of school practices (e.g. Single Central Record)
