We know that every school will have to approach opening to more pupils differently; so, that’s why our template is fully amendable and contains guidance notes throughout to help you develop your plan depending on the needs of your school community. When amending this plan to suit your school’s needs, you must make sure that you consult any recognised unions and that the plan meets any local requirements. We have also included links to other relevant resources on TheSchoolBus that you may find helpful.

To make sure we’re offering you the most useful advice at this time, we’ve worked with the following sector experts on this plan:

  • Procurement specialists Auditel
  • HR experts FusionHR
  • Wellbeing expert Sarah Wray from Live Well Consultancy
  • Safeguarding and SEND expert Sara Alston, founder of SEA Inclusion & Safeguarding
  • Bereavement charity Winston’s Wish
