Health and Safety

Article 24 (health and health services) Every child has the right to the best possible health. Governments must provide good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food, and a clean environment and education on health and well-being so that children can stay healthy. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.



During these unprecedented times the Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body have been looking at additional measures we needed to put in place to keep us all as safe as possible on the school site.


The  risk assessment below has been drawn up and is being published to show the actions we are taking and the measures being put in place to protect the school community and make the school a Covid Safe place.  


If the situation should change and we receive further guidance from the government, the risk assessment will be updated accordingly.


If you have any specific questions about this risk assessment, please direct them to the School Business Manager, via email to: 


Thank you.

At Newlands:

In order to help parents, carers and children to understand  what safety measures we have put in place in school, during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have put together social story and a guide (see links below). The guide will be regularly updated as we review our risk assessments and provision. Thank you to the many parents and carers who responded to our survey and sent us questions they would like to have the answers to. We have tried to cover all of these in the guide.
