The Local Authority has recently published guidance on Kelsi for Kent Schools and Academies regarding contingency planning in preparation for the UK leaving the EU in March.
The document highlights the potential disruption which may arise should key road networks across the county become congested as a result of increased boarder checks at the Channel Ports / Eurostar terminal in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit.
It is possible that any widespread congestion may have an impact on the operation of schools, including the ability of staff to attend work.
In the light of this the guidance encourages Schools / Academies to consider the following staffing issues:
To help develop the school’s contingency plans, early conversations are recommended with staff about their own personal circumstances and possible impact of these on the school.
It may be helpful for schools to document any anticipated staffing issues and proposed remedial actions within their plan.
Importantly given that the terms of which the UK will leave the European Union are yet to be finalised – schools are advised to revisit their plans to reflect any changed circumstances before the end of March.
Should any particular issues be identified which the school / academy is unable to plan for, they are advised to discuss these with their Area Education Officer.
