In our last newsletter at the start of the month, we gave some information about contingency planning in the event that schools may have to close. Events have clearly escalated since then and as your school is likely to be empty for some time, or put to use in other ways, our advice today is:
We have been doing some work with a couple of clusters trying to help continuity planning and risk identification. This is a start point for continuity planning and setting up hub schools. We will be progressing support and resources for this through the days ahead.
If this is useful in your areas, please let us know and we will continue to feed any planning, guidance and support resources through to you. If you know of others in your regions that would find this helpful, let us know and we will add to any circulation.
If you are further ahead than us, please feel free to share back... No point in everyone doing the same work from scratch!
Our Commitment to Our Schools
While your school may be closed, we will continue to work for you.
We will be monitoring the situation as it unfolds and will be ready to support in the event of further critical incidents that are likely to occur.
Further advice and guidance to help staying secure during the current situation:

Please contact us if you do have further questions at GDPR@schoolpro.uk.
We are happy to support any school as much as we can over and above any service level at the time within our capacity. Please ask...
Stay safe and healthy,
Ian, Rich and Ben
