COVID 19 Information / Risk Assessments / Catch-up Plans

Please find our updated risk assessment checklist for Autumn 2021 term and Ivy Bank's Outbreak Management Plan for Covid.

All education and childcare settings should have outbreak management plans. The Outbreak management Plan should sit alongside the school’s 
COVID Risk Assessment. 

The Education Contingency Framework identifies what measures may need to be in place where an outbreak occurs.

The current definition of an outbreak is: 
• 5 individuals (children, pupils, students or staff), who are likely to have mixed closely, test positive for COVID-19 within a 10-day period, 
• 10% of a group of individuals (children, pupils, students or staff) who are likely to have mixed closely test positive for COVID-19 within a 
10-day period 

Where there is a suspected outbreak in a school, an outbreak control meeting will usually be triggered by the Education COVID response team / 
CE Public Health.
