In line with government guidance, Lighthouse School is currently open for vulnerable students and those of critical workers. All students have an offer of face to face education.
Below is the school’s risk assessment, which has been quality-assured by our external Insurance and Liability provider and approved by the school’s governing body:
Lighthouse School continues to provide on-site face to face learning, off-site virtual learning, together with wellbeing and safeguarding support, to all students as part of our ongoing blended learning programme.
Below is our Remote Learning Information:
The school has invested a significant amount in laptops, iPads, and individual student resources to minimise the need for sharing equipment in school and to ensure that all students are able to engage remotely in the virtual provision currently being offered during Lockdown.
The timetable has been modified to a two-week timetable which includes four hour-long lessons every day, Monday-Thursdays and there is a rotation between live lessons and uploaded lessons. Throughout the week, there are opportunities for staff-facilitated social interaction learning over lunchtime. Fridays are used for targeted interventions, additional EHCP work, personal development learning, and catch-up. This is available for students for the whole day but, for on-site students, accessed remotely in the afternoons as the school site is closed.
In line with government guidance we have engaged in Lateral Flow Testing for students and staff where active consent has been given. This is being used as one of a range of measures in place within the risk assessment to support on-site learning, where “Hands, Face, Space” is the crucial message.
The provision established reflects the expectations outlined in the latest government guidance. The Executive Leadership Team are constantly monitoring the latest guidance and local information to ensure that Lighthouse School’s provision reflects the best practice. If any aspects of the provision changes, Lighthouse School will inform all stakeholders at the earliest possible moment.
