ACORN EDUCATION TRUST. COVID BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN
Aim
If a local area sees a spike in coronavirus (COVID-19) infection rates, that is resulting in
localised community spread, appropriate authorities will decide which measures to
implement to help contain the spread – these measures could include the partial closure of
schools in the area.
This document outlines how the school will operate if a national/local lockdown is
implemented. If a local lockdown is implemented in our area, the school will work closely with
the local Health Protection Team (HPT) and implement provisions as advised by the team.
This is a live document that will be reviewed by Acorn Senior Executive and Clarendon SLT as
and when the situation develops.

Key principles:
   1. Schools remain open and safe.
   2. Staff and students feel safe and happy.
   3. Teachers are teaching and students are learning at school and at home.
Whatever the situation, the school will need time to plan and organise to maintain the care
and safety of all, therefore one or two days full closure may be needed in response to
significant staff illness, student illness requiring significant deep cleaning, or the emergence
of a potential national/local lockdown.

                                                                                              1

On-site provision in the event of a national/local lockdown
Students – see Appendix 1 detailing preparations for a national/local lockdown
Staff - see Appendix 5 detailing staff guidance for Microsoft Teams teaching

Key Principles:
   1. Critical workers, which includes school staff, are permitted to travel into and out of
      the lockdown areas to get to work, in order to maintain provision for students who
      will be attending on-site provision.
   2. If shielding measures are reintroduced due to a national/local lockdown, affected
      members of staff will be supported to work from home, or the appropriate leave or
      pay measures will be discussed.
   3. Staff with roles that must be undertaken on site will be asked to come into school to
      deliver the provision, unless they are shielding or self-isolating. All staff members who
      are able to carry out their role from home will be supported to do so.
An audit of all staff will be conducted to assess who is able to work on site, and who will need
to work from home due to their underlying health issues, or those of the people they live
with. The audit will be reviewed on a continuous basis to establish whether the circumstances
of any staff member have changed.
If any staff member has concerns regarding working on the school site, they will discuss these
concerns with their line manager.

Infection prevention and control
Clarendon’s risk assessments will continue to be adhered to and meet the requirements set
out in the DfE’s system of controls.
Any member of the school community who displays symptoms of coronavirus must go to get
a test. Tests can be booked online or ordered by telephone via NHS 119. Critical workers,
including school staff, have priority access to testing.
If a student develops symptoms of coronavirus while on site, they will be taken to a
designated isolation area while they wait to be collected. If required, the student will be
supervised while they await collection. If the supervising member of staff is unable to
maintain social distancing, e.g. due to the student’s age or needs, they will wear full PPE. After
the student has left the premises, any areas they were in will be cleaned. The student’s
parents will be encouraged to get their child tested.
If the test is positive, the student will need to self-isolate for a period of 10 days (which
includes the day the symptoms started, or the day the test was had if there were no
symptoms).
Remote education will be arranged for any student who has to self isolate immediately –
unless the student is too unwell to engage.

                                                                                                2
ACORN EDUCATION TRUST. COVID BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN
If a staff member develops symptoms while on site, they will be directed to go home to self-
isolate and to get a test. Cover arrangements will be put in place. Periods of isolation are as
above.
Any staff members or students who have been in close contact with a symptomatic individual
do not need to self-isolate, unless they develop symptoms themselves or the individual
subsequently tests positive.
If any staff members or students test positive, the school will contact the local Health
Protection Team (HPT), and follow their guidance. In most cases, the individual’s close
contacts at school will be sent home to self-isolate for 10 days and encouraged to get a test
if they develop symptoms. If more individuals test positive, the school will follow advice from
the local HPT, which may include requiring more people to self-isolate.
See Appendix 3 detailing our approach for managing suspected or confirmed cases of Covid-
19

Transport
Students and staff that have to attend Clarendon will be encouraged to walk or cycle
wherever possible, and to avoid public transport. If students and staff need to use public
transport, they will be reminded that those over the age of 11 are required to wear a face
covering while travelling, unless they have an exemption card.

Remote Learning during lockdown or bubble closure
If a national/local lockdown is implemented, the school will offer immediate access to remote
education for students who are required to remain at home. If there is not a local lockdown,
but a single class or bubble needs to self-isolate, the school will immediately implement
remote learning for that cohort.
See Appendix 1 detailing preparations for a national/local lockdown
Clarendon will utilise the support available through the DfE’s ‘Get help with Technology
during cornonavirus (COVID-19)’ scheme. Under the scheme, the school can order a number
of laptops, tablets and 4G wireless routers, to support the following groups of students if they
do not have access to a digital device or the internet through other means:
   •   Students in Years 7 to 11, who are affected by disruption to face-to-face education.
   •   Clinically extremely vulnerable children across all year groups who are shielding or
       self-isolating in line with government and/or clinical advice.
Before distributing devices, the school will ensure:

   •   The devices are set up to access remote education.

                                                                                              3
ACORN EDUCATION TRUST. COVID BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN
•   Appropriate safeguarding controls and support are in place to help students and their
       families use the devices safely.

The DfE have also worked in partnership with mobile network operators to help students in
Years 7 to 11 who rely on a mobile internet connection when their face-to-face education is
disrupted by coronavirus (COVID-19). Families may be able to benefit from free increases to
their mobile data if they’re a customer of either: EE, O2, Sky Mobile, SMARTY, Tesco Mobile,
Three, Virgin Mobile or Vodafone.
Alongside the DfE IT provision, The Trust will provide further resources to support on line
learning.

Rob Knott (Head of Acorn IT) will arrange distribution of all laptops to Clarendon, and process
data increases.

David Cade (Deputy Headteacher), will issue and receive laptops and dongles, according to
the needs of students at that time.

See Appendix 4 detailing student protocols for Microsoft Teams lessons – this also includes
how to access Microsoft Teams lessons.

Returning to school
The Headteacher with and through the Trust will work with the LA to ensure students only
return to school when it is safe for them to do so. Prior to the return of students and staff, all
relevant risk assessments will be reviewed.
After a period of self-isolation, bubble closure, or the lessening of national/local lockdown
rules, the headteacher will inform parents when their child will return to school.
The headteacher will listen to all concerns that parents may have about their child returning
to school and will advise them of the measures in place to ensure the safety of their child.

Safeguarding
Ensuring safeguarding arrangements remain effective while the school is partially closed is a
key priority. Our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy was updated during the national
lockdown to include provisions for keeping students safe during the coronavirus pandemic –
we will continue to follow these procedures for students who remain at home, where
appropriate, until all students are able to return to school.
We will continue to ensure that:

   •   The best interests of students always come first.
   •   If anyone in the school has a safeguarding concern about a pupil, they act immediately.
   •   A DSL or deputy DSL is always available.

                                                                                                4
ACORN EDUCATION TRUST. COVID BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN
•   Unsuitable individuals are not permitted to work with students or come into contact
       with students whilst on site.
   •   Students who remain at home are protected when they are online.

Food provision
We will ensure measures are in place so that meals can be prepared and served safely for
critical worker and vulnerable students, who remain on site.
The catering team will also work with our food providers to ensure we can continue offering
Free School Meals (FSMs) to students and families who are eligible whether at home or on
site.
Eligible FSM students learning from home, will be able to pick up a food parcel (enough for 2
days), from the gate behind the canteen at 1pm on the following days: Monday, Wednesday
and Friday. Alternatively, weekly food parcels can be arranged for collection on a Monday to
reduce journeys.
FSM critical worker and vulnerable students will continue to be served food during the day
while on site.
In some cases, the Trust will adopt the government voucher scheme for eligible FSM families.
James Evans (Head of School Services) will oversee all aspects of catering.
David Cade will be responsible for liaising with parents, to ensure the right provision is
delivered.

Communication
The school will communicate its plan for a national/local lockdown with parents, including
whether it will remain open to vulnerable students and children of critical workers, or if
remote working will be applicable for all.
Jo Ronxin (Head of Acorn Communication) will oversee all communication and prepare all
templates.
All relevant stakeholders will be kept up-to-date with the circumstances of the national/local
lockdown and how it affects the school as they develop.
If any member of the school community wishes to discuss any concerns relating to the
school’s provision during this period, they should contact the following as appropriate:

   •   Staff – their line manager
   •   Students – their class teacher or member of pastoral staff
   •   Parents – the headteacher

                                                                                            5
ACORN EDUCATION TRUST. COVID BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN
Monitoring and review
This plan will be reviewed continually in line with guidance from the government and Public
Health England (PHE).
Any changes to the plan will be communicated to all relevant stakeholders.

Appendix 1
Plans for a National/Local Lockdown
All students, other than critical workers and vulnerable students, will work remotely from
home. Students should follow their school timetable as lessons will continue remotely. All
students should ensure that they have a Teams account setup on a device which is
compatable.

Teachers will work remotely from home where possible and deliver the timetabled lesson.
Teachers will use a variety of methods to support the year groups learning from home.
These include: lessons via Teams, Show My Homework, emails, phone calls, etc. Students
will be supported with DfE laptops if they do not have devices they can use at home.

Critical worker and vulnerable children will continue to attend school and be part of the
Teams lesson alongside their peers.

Live lessons will begin at the times below giving students and teachers increased gaps
between lessons for sufficient breaks and also to ventilate the room if working in school.

Period 1 – 9:15am
Period 2 – 10:15am
Period 3 – 11:35am
Period 4 – 12:35pm
Period 5 – 2:10pm

In the case of staff absence through illness, no lesson will be able to take place on Teams.
Heads of Department will ensure adequate work is set on Show My Homework for the
students due to be in that lesson.

Wiltshire schools do not need to contact the DfE helpline about positive cases. Local Authority Public Health will support schools to
manage the situation where positive cases arise with PHE SW HPT where appropriate. The DfE will be kept informed of cases locally
through regular updates from the Local Authority.

                                                                        1
Local Authority response to positive cases
Public Health will: support with risk assessment; advise on next steps; provide information for parents on self-isolation; and support with
communications including providing template letters for parents etc. This will happen in partnership with LA Education, Communication and
Transport colleagues and PHE SW HPT where appropriate.

                                                                If out of hours

Appendix 5
Staff Guidance for Microsoft Teams Teaching
   •   Applicable to all students remote learning
   •   Lessons should start on Microsoft Teams, break these up though with lessons set
       on SMHW

Before the day:
   • Send out invites for scheduled lessons using Microsoft Teams invites
   • Check Microsoft Outlook, click on the scheduled meeting and make any adjustments
       to manage the access/properties of the class
   • Think carefully about the content you are going to cover
   • Consider focusing on maintaining or developing what has already been learned
   • Be clear with yourself over what you want the students to learn
   • Are there any activities students need to complete before the lesson?
   • Don’t try to cover too much in one long lesson. Break it in to two shorter sessions
   • Consider the class and how they learn best - there is no one size fits all approach to
       remote teaching

At the beginning of each lesson:
    • Be clear on what is going to be learned in the lesson, use clear learning objectives for
       the lesson
    • Be clear about how they will measure success
    • Frame new content within the bigger picture
    • Use scaffolded tasks to increase confidence, participation
    • Link new content to prior learning and provide links where appropriate
    • Keep offering checks on learning, and keep offering support throughout
    • Indicate where / who they can go to for help or support beyond the lesson and how
       (email?)
    • Ensure students have the opportunity to put in to practice the new content they
       have learned
    • Ask them to elaborate on the content
    • Encourage peer communication within the lesson where possible

After each lesson:
   • Are there any activities students need to complete before the next lesson?
   • Keep students informed of their progress
   • Provide feedback appropriately (corrective, directive, developmental)
   • Encourage peer communication beyond the lesson where possible

                                              20
General pointers:
   • All lessons are to be recorded, but if you feel an incident is going to occur – please
      turn the mic off
   • Don’t try to recreate remotely exactly what you do in the classroom

Dealing with behaviour:
   • Any poor behaviour, email behaviour@clarendonacademy.com or phone Anthony
       on 07511700846
   • If any students demonstrate poor behaviour, remove from the lesson immediately
       and contact as above
   • Students are muted by default – we as teachers control their microphone on and off
   • Control student cameras, and only you decide when they are turned on and off
   • All students should have their mobile phone switched off during lessons
   • Monitor text chat during the lesson and ensure it is used appropriately: remove
       students and contact as above

Dealing with safeguarding concerns:
   • Any safeguarding concerns report to ‘My concern’ straight away
   • If you feel a student is in immediate danger, please contact either Tom on
       07511700834, or Rob on 07732800899

Adapting pedagogy:
   • Nothing in remote teaching replicates being in the classroom
   • The inability to scan the classroom, know instantly when a student is struggling is
      difficult
   • The speed at which we can check on work, check on the task at hand or offer ad-hoc
      support is extremely limited

New subject matter being taught:
  • Frame the new subject matter you want students to learn in the larger picture,
      where does this work fit in to the Unit / the course?
  • Clearly outline what it is you want the students to learn from the activity or task
  • Provide them with scaffolding exercises to help them to help direct the learning
      process you are trying to teach them

Refer to previous learning activities that students can reference to or check back on:
   • One of the key things in learning new material is what students already know on the
       topic
   • Make sure that students know the prior learning that is expected of them. Where
       can they go if they need more information?

Communicate clearly what it is you want the student to learn and achieve:
   • Be specific about what it is you want them to learn
   • Be specific about how they know if they’ve completed the work to the required level
     – remind them of the success criteria
   • Be specific about what achievement means on the topic

                                             21
•   Use clear learning goals and criteria

Consider asking students to complete some prep work ahead of the task:
   • Is there any pre-reading or pre-activities you want them to complete?
   • How is this going to help you or them in the lesson?
   • One example of this is a completed, worked through example, very clear step-by-
      step instructions over what you are going to be teaching them. During the lesson,
      steps can be removed one-by-one until they are able to complete the task
      themselves
   • The worked examples (or tutorials) could be a reference to a YouTube video, a Loom
      video, an MP3 recording or scanned in notes of the completed steps

Keep checking on the progress the students are making during the task / lesson:
   • Keep offering support, keep offering checks that they are all understanding the task
   • Direct them to where they can go for help / guidance
   • Offer help / guidance / support as suitable or required

Tasks need to be set where students need to process / use the new learning gained:
   • Students need to implement their new learning to actual tasks
   • They cannot sit there and receive the new material and remember it. They need to
       practice using it
   • Give time across to students to do this. Don’t be worried by allowing time in, for
       example, a Teams meeting for them to complete a written task or practice using the
       new learning
   • Ask them to elaborate and develop the concept. Formulate new thinking
   • Consider the use of questions: What? When? Who? Why? How? Where?

Let students know when / or if they have understood the subject matter:
    • Keep students informed of their progress
    • How will students know they are at the required level of understanding on that task?
    • How can you make use of PLCs used in your subject
    • This could be in the form of a test - use of retrieval practice is seen as a far better
       tool for long-term memory engagement ahead of just re-reading the material

Provide adequate feedback on what they have done:
   • Could be in a corrective way – the answer is wrong
   • Much better in a directive way – the answer is wrong and you should have answered
       it in this way
   • Or, are you able to frame feedback to allow further development – I am impressed
       by your level of understanding here, how might the answer change if…
   • Monitor and keep an eye on those with low completion or activity levels – it might
       be as a result of lack of understanding or other, non-learning challenges they are
       facing. Offer support and other channels of support as appropriate

                                               22
Spread content over time:
   • Don’t offer too much content or make the sessions too lengthy
   • You are far better to space the learning out, revisit previous content

Know how each class learns best in remote teaching:
   • Over time, gather an understanding of the tools and approaches that fit best for your
      class
   • There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach
   • One class may thrive where others may struggle

Look to encourage peer communication:
   • We often use peer work / peer checking / peer review in the classroom, look to
       replicate this remotely
   • What tools can you use to encourage this? Can review of a submitted piece of work
       be the homework task for the next lesson? Consider use of a shared folder set up on
       Microsoft Teams or OneDrive where active discussion of other students’ work is
       encouraged
   • Encourage collaboration wherever possible, lockdown can be a very lonely place!
       Encourage peer work beyond the classroom and challenge the students to work
       together in between tasks / lessons

                                            23
What might an effective live remote lesson structure look like?

When            What                                      Comment

Before the      Send Teams invite; upload                 Upload lesson overview/ppt to SMHW in
lesson          resources; be clear on exactly what       case they can’t access Teams.

Appendix 6
Significant Staff Absence

Rob Price to prepare SLT senior roles if he is absent due to illness:
           a.   CXT to lead, supported by Jo Ronxin
           b.   If CXT is ill, DEC supported by Jo Ronxin.
           c.   If DEC is ill, Jo Ronxin
           d.   If Jo Ronxin is ill, AXS/LZC/MLG/SDN/TRN to share the lead on a daily basis
           e.   Sara Edwards will continue to support as needed.
If the school finds that a critical number of staff are unable to attend due to illness/self-
isolation, then we would be forced to close down year group bubbles in the following order:
Year 9, 8, 10, 12, 13, 11, 7. Work for these year groups will be set via Show My Homework
where lessons cannot be taken.
If staff absence is in excess, SLT to decide on which bubbles to close, and move into remote
learning.
