Addendum to School Child Protection Policy

Addendum to School Child Protection Policy

From 4th January 2021 the government announced a national lockdown, schools and colleges should allow only vulnerable children and young people and the children of critical workers to attend these settings. All other pupils and students should not attend and should learn remotely until February half term. 

Alternative provision (AP) and special schools will remain open and continue to offer face to face provision for all pupils where appropriate.

Early year’s provision should continue to remain open and should continue to allow all children to attend full time or their usual timetable hours. This includes early years registered nurseries and childminders, maintained nursery schools, as well as nursery classes in schools and other pre-reception provision on school sites. Only vulnerable children and children of critical workers should attend on-site reception classes.

This addendum of the template Child Protection Policy for schools is provide schools with a model policy for adoption locally.
