  6. Hi, schools are certainly looking more and more at technology solutions. Health records can be sensitive, so what schools track and how is very much an issue in Europe and other countries. Other things they are doing are tools to support reporting of temperature checks, self screens at home, tracking apps for school bus service to know who was on which bus when in case of a suspected or confirmed exposure and communication tools. We will be hosting a Round Table session in a couple of weeks on this topic, you are welcome to join. Details will be published later in the week. Kevin
  7. It is a commonly known fact that the school authorities are extra cautious about the health of their students after the outbreak of COVID-19. The school management has been researching different tactics to improve the health of their students. Most of the schools have started collecting students' medical history to get a clear picture of students' overall health. School Health Services software are available to ease frontline health workers' jobs, including school nurses. What all steps have your school taken to improve the health management of the students? Please share!

    Re-booting School Sport

    INTRODUCTION When schools closed early for Easter in March 2020, no one knew when they would open their doors again. Some felt that they would start as usual in late April, with the tacit expectation that the summer term would look similar to all the years that had preceded it. Within a few weeks, public exams had been abandoned for the year, and it was clear that the term would start substantially later than planned, if at all. Many schools had taken advantage of the Government’s Job Retention Scheme to defray the cost of workers no longer required. The word “furlough” had entered the publi

    Recovery Plan Assessment

    The challenge of reopening and being prepared for recovery from the Pandemic is a daunting task. There are no experts that have been through something like this. However, tackling recovery through a systematic approach can help schools ensure that their plans are complete.

The Recovery Plan Assessment covers a range of pertinent policies and procedures including safety, health, risk and response and the fo
