COVID-19 - Support and Recovery

Schools and settings have done amazing work during the crisis in supporting children, families and their communities. It has been a privilege to work with you all.

During the current Coronavirus pandemic SAfE has been working in close partnership with the Directorate of Education, Life-long Learning and Culture and Phase Councils to provide a co-ordinated education response for Surrey. We are leading on two of the four strands of the Surrey Schools and Settings COVID-19 Recovery Plan: Organisation and People and Learning and Narrowing the Gap. 

Our website continues to provide a range of support for school and setting leaders, teachers and governors as we move into the next phase as schools welcome back more pupils and beyond. 

On this page you will find links to Surrey County Council guidance and support for COVID-19, and Guidance from external sources.

For more information on narrowing the learning gap and how this is being impacted by COVID-19 and school closures, visit our COVID-19 Catch up under our Vulnerable Learners segment.

If you need individual support or guidance or have any questions please contact the SAfE team at:

COVID-19 Support Webinar - Contingency Planning for 'Remote Learning' in Surrey

SAfE has hosted two COVID-19 Contingency Planning webinars, beginning with a presentation from Chris Runeckles of the Education Endowment Foundation exploring evidence to support school leaders as they prepare contingency plans for remote learning.

SAfE then followed this presentation with a webinar (17/09/2020) focused on supporting schools for contingency planning in Surrey. You can view this webinar below, and find guidance and templates that may be useful for Surrey schools in their contingency planning.
