Covid-19 Contingency Plan

Monday 12th October 2020

Following the successful return of our students to school we are now sharing Covid-19 related contingency arrangements in case they are required at any point in the future.

We are contingency planning for both a partial school closure for year groups as well as a full closure for all students.  Our planning has been informed by our experience of lockdown.

All Midlothian secondary schools have worked collaboratively on school contingency plans, which reflect scenarios that may occur as we continue to operate under COVID restrictions.  All have agreed principles across Midlothian secondary schools that also allow for the unique circumstances of each school.

All Midlothian Secondary schools have agreed to prioritise in-school attendance for Senior Phase students (S4 to S6).

I am sure you will understand that the exact circumstances that would necessitate the implementation of any Contingency Plan for our school, a locality, or across the whole of Midlothian, are not known. These plans have however been developed based on a requirement for full-time education for all students with a blend of in-school and at-home learning where possible, with in-school learning being the main aspiration.

If a ‘local lockdown’ is imposed by Scottish Government/ Health Protection it also cannot be assumed that these contingency arrangements will be required, as it will depend on the extent or type of restrictions imposed.  These plans are therefore indicative and subject to change.

The focus in developing these contingency plans has been to ensure that learning provision, both in-school and at-home, meets the needs of every student and that they are supported individually in a way that helps them to achieve their learning targets and prepare them for the future.

Our absolute priority continues to be the safety of students and staff.  Thereafter, continuity in learning is our significant priority.

 In developing our Contingency Plan, Lasswade High School will be guided by the key principles set out and updated by the Scottish Government in
