Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Broadwalk is back to being fully open to staff and pupils of key workers and those categorised as vulnerable. We have stringent procedures in place informed by a whole school risk assessment that has been approved by our board of governors and Salford Local Authority. We have a one-way system in place as well as hand sanitising stations and advice on wearing a face covering in areas where these are required. Classrooms are spaced out so that social distancing between pupils can be encouraged and areas for staff are designated to ensure that they are able to effectively social distance.

Where possible we have reduced the number of contact points including where paper based documents are concerned, converting to digital work where possible.

We are closely following the government guidance where test and trace are concerned as well as having systems in place for pupils who may display COVID symptoms in school or at home.

We have a robust process for switching between onsite learning and remote education should the need arise so that pupils will have no lost learning and they still have access to a full, broad and balanced curriculum.

Broadwalk's day for pupils begins at 9:00am and ends at 14:00pm.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact either your child's form tutor or a member of staff to discuss.

Designated Safeguarding Lead

Broadwalk has a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) and a Deputy DSL.
The Designated Safeguarding Lead is: Olwyn Naylor
The Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead is: Laura Corr

Reporting a Concern

Where staff have a concern about a child, they should continue to follow the process outlined in the school Safeguarding Policy.

Staff are reminded of the need to report any concern immediately and without
delay.

Supporting children not in school

Broadwalk PRU is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all its children and young people. Where the DSL has identified a child to be on the edge of social care support, or who would normally receive pastoral-type support in school, they should ensure that a robust communication plan is in place for that child or young person.

The communication plans can include; remote contact, phone contact. Other individualised contact methods should be considered and recorded.

Broadwalk and its DSL's will work closely with all stakeholders to maximise the effectiveness of any communication plan.
