COVID-19

This page will be updated   with information on the preparation  of our school in relation to the coronavirus outbreak.


Risk Assessment:

As you are aware schools are receiving regular updates  from the Government regarding the full opening of our schools .

The Trustees of WNAT, of which Springwood High School is a part of, are holding regular meetings with members of the WNAT Executive team to ensure that our risk assessments are up to date with any new government legislation. 

The following link will take you to the latest version of our Risk Assessment:

WNAT Risk Assessment - COVID-19 

This risk assessment has been applied to our school, ensuring  that every member of our staff is clear on their role and the schools procedures.

However, it is important to understand that this document is live and will be updated regularly to ensure that it reflects the latest government guidance.

If  you have any queries regarding this then please do not hesitate to contact the school direct.
