Coronavirus - Phased Return Information

The attached document sets out our approach and draft plans for Highfields phased return to school from 1st June 2020. It has been written in collaboration with our parents, staff and Governors from listening to the concerns of all involved parties and also where appropriate to Highfields, following guidance from the Department for Education and educational unions.

As a school, we have identified three common ideals for our approach, Sandwell Local Authority also supports these: -

  • We focus on the safety and wellbeing of our children
  • Our communities need to have the confidence that it is safe to send their children to school
  • Our staff need to feel safe and well supported

The plan proposed on the next pages ensures we can do that whilst catering for vulnerable children, for Key Worker children and so we can also begin to widen our approach to include additional year groups.



The attached Risk Assessments for the returning year groups and keyworker group are intended to identify, assess and minimise (wherever possible) any risks involved with the reopening plan of the school. They also take into account Government guidance, health and safety recommendations, updates from Sandwell Local Authority and the results of a parent and staff survey.
