Recording any Somerset school closures

Summary

The Government continues to expect early years providers, schools and colleges to remain open, however the changing advice around self-isolation has raised concerns and increased the risk around schools having sufficient staff to do this.

Main News Story

Therefore, we have attached the latest Somerset guidance on school closures and how to log any on the website  http://somersetschoolclosures.org.uk.

ICT Helpdesk Contact Details:

The Local Authority will continue to communicate with schools which are closed using the weekly schools bulletin – sent to each schools email addresses.

Schools will continue to play a key role in the Local Area’s safeguarding and SEND functions even if they are closed. We would expect schools to continue to access these key communications and respond in a timely manner to requests including:

  • Information from Children’s Social Care in relation to safeguarding concerns.
  • Consultations as part of the Education, Health & Care Plan process.
