Governance Statement regarding phased school reopening
Prior to the reopening of Grove Academy at the Wellington Street site, the governors require assurances from the DfE and Slough Borough Council as appropriate regarding health and safety at the site, in line with the published school risk assessment. The governors appreciate the challenges present with regards to the site as it stands and this is being considered carefully. Governors have closely monitored the schools plans for reopening and are happy that they are transparent, fair and have the duty of care to pupils and support for staff at the forefront of all planning. These plans and the risk assessment are under constant review in line with government guidance. The governors support the operational decisions that will be taken by school leaders within the remit of the agreed risk assessment.
