Individual risk assessment – BAME and clinically vulnerable employees

Schools are advised to provide additional support to their BAME employees through this difficult time, and ensure that they do all they reasonably can to keep them safe.  The following documentation is now available to assist schools to do this:

•           A draft letter which school can provide to BAME employees

•           Guidance for Schools - Individual Risk Assessment for Staff Categorised as at Higher Risk from COVID-19

•           A voluntary individual risk assessment specifically designed to support BAME and clinically vulnerable employees.

The risk assessment tool is also designed to support clinically vulnerable employees. The risk assessment tool should be used alongside your existing COVID-19 risk assessment.
