School Lets - Risk assessments and NHS Test and Trace process

18 May 2021

Reminder that for lettings, schools must ensure that there is a suitable risk assessment in place in addition to any letting agreement.

From a Covid-19 perspective this includes ensuring that:

  • Relevant government guidance is followed for that specific activity
  • Protective measures are in place, including dealing with suspected cases and capturing visitor details as part of the NHS Test and Trace process.
  • Any actions identified within the risk assessment must be agreed and completed.

If a venue within an education setting is open to the public, such as an indoor sports facility or swimming pool, then that venue is required to collect details of customers, visitors and staff and to display an official NHS QR code poster. Guidance on visitors and maintaining records must be followed.
