SASF Coronavirus (Covid-19) Contingency Plan
Since February we have had a specific covid-19 contingency action plan in place, alongside our normal critical incident plan. We have received regular updates and guidance from Public Health England. We are also putting plans in place to ensure that we are as prepared as possible for a range of potential scenarios.
All attempts are being made to reduce the impact on the health and safety of our families and the continuity of education we provide.
