Covid-19 statement

  • It Happens Education offer both face-to-face sessions onsite and remote digital sessions.
  • If a face to face booking is cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions, by either the school or It Happens Education, we will instead offer a remote digital session. If this is not an appropriate alternative we will endeavour to rebook at a later date.
  • We expect schools to notify us immediately if there has been a confirmed case of Covid-19 amongst staff or pupils.
  • It Happens Education speakers commit to abiding by current Covid-19 government guidelines in regards to symptoms, isolation and social distancing.
  • It Happens Education cannot guarantee specific speakers as changes may have to be made should any unexpected health issues arise.
  • Where possible, speakers plan to travel by car and avoid public transport.
  • When accommodation is required, and where possible, speakers will stay in hotels. This is to avoid contact with other households, protect schools and ensure the possibility of contract-tracing is maximised.
  • When visiting schools, speakers will arrive with face shields/masks.
  • When visiting schools, speakers are very happy to adhere to school Covid-19 policies.
  • For face to face sessions, speakers will plan to present without a face shield/mask as long as they are 2m or further away from any other person.
  • Where possible, speakers would rather bring and use their own laptop and clicker. This enables us to minimise contact with school equipment. The school will need to supply Wi-Fi, projector screen, HDMI cable and speakers compatible with a PC & Apple. Please let us know in advance if any issues.
  • It Happens Education understands that eating, drinking, staff rooms, lunch areas etc might be complicated at this time and are very happy to go offsite, where possible, to find a café if preferred.
