ASSESSING RISK

The health and wellbeing of all staff, pupils and families is our top priority as we ensure a safe return to school. We want to get things right and are working exceptionally hard to adapt to this new way of working.

We continue to respond to local and national guidance about safe practice and procedures in school and improve our approaches as a result.

A range of guidance has been used to prepare robust, dynamic risk assessments for our school and ELC setting. We continue to review and update our risk assessments on a regular basis. You can view these below.

If you have any concerns or feedback about our current provision, please email or telephone the school office in the first instance (st-davids.ps@midlothian.gov.uk or 0131 271 4675) and somebody will respond to you in due course.

We suggest you read the Parent Council Virtual meeting 19 08 20 slides (click on red hyperlink) first. You can access all of the documents referred to within these slides by clicking on the below links.
