Health protection in schools and other childcare facilities https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/health-protection-in-schools-and-other-childcare-facilities This guidance provides advice on: - preventing the spread of infections - which diseases to vaccinate for - how long to keep children away from school - managing infectious diseases - cleaning the environment The specific chapter on what to do if you suspect an outbreak of infection can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/health-protection-in-schools-and-other-childcare-facilities/chapter-4-what-to-do-if-you-suspect-an-outbreak-of-infection Kind regards, Claire
Headteacher & NQT Induction Tutor
09 Dec
Earlier in the term, the DfE produced a list of policies schools should have, this can be found here. One of the policies listed is an NQT Induction Policy. Most schools will already have this in place, in case you don’t, I have attached a couple of examples. They both link up to the DfE Statutory Guidance and the Teachers’ Standards. Either is fine. You will need to add your own logo and context, but most of the content should remain the same as it links to the statutory requirements for induction. If you have any questions, please do get in touch. Kind regards, Amanda Jackson
Transition Guarantee
06 Dec
Dear Colleagues, Following on from the transitions planning workshop on the 22nd of November we want to extend our thanks to all those in attendance. It was an excellent morning and your thoughts, ideas, and input will be key in refining and implementing a transitions programme that meets the needs of children, their families, and professionals moving forward. On the day, an Appreciative Inquiry (AI) was completed which captured all the strengths / needs / challenges / dreams that you have to ensure an effective transitions programme is implemented for next year. We are currently working on updating the existing Transition Guarantee for all schools, as well as looking at the AI model and the information you provided to ensure that a partnership approach is adopted for the programme moving forward. We would like to invite you to a follow-up workshop where we can deliver to you our new and improved transitions programme, so I would appreciate if you could nominate any of the following professionals from your school to attend the workshop; • Head Teacher • Deputy Head Teacher • Head of Year 7 • Inclusion Manager • Lead for Year 6 / 7 • SENCO We would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for continuing to support this process to ensure we continue to make a difference to the young people that will be undertaking their transition for next year, whilst also ensuring as agency’s / professionals we are recognising the needs of the young people and responding appropriately. Below are the details of Appreciative Inquiry Event; Date:14th February 2020 Time: 09.30 – 13.00 Venue: CEME In order to secure a place on the workshop please email Lauren Satchell - lauren.satchell@havering.gov.uk.

Attendance Coding School - Polling Station
22 Nov
For the attention of staff responsible for updating pupils’ attendance in SIMS Dear Colleagues Subject: Polling Station - attendance code required for pupils unable to attend school due to closure for Polling Stations If your school is used as a polling station you will need to enter attendance codes in SIMS to explain pupil absence. Because this polling day was unexpected, and schools could not plan to include it as one of the inset days, then enter attendance code Y for exceptional circumstances. To do this in SIMS: Select Focus | Attendance/Lesson Monitor | Exceptional Circumstances Click on Search to check if it has been added already, if not click New and enter date in both From and To boxes Group Type - will default to the whole school but for partial closure, you can select from the dropdown list e.g year group Click Search and select (if partial closure and year is selected use Ctrl key to highlight more than one year) Code – select Y Unable to attend due to exceptional circumstances The description is Polling Day Click Apply and then OK to the message that the marks have been applied. This has the effect of adding Y codes to the selected pupils within your school Please contact the Attendance Team if you have any queries.
