Emergency procedures for supporting learning and community


There are many ways that Lancashire schools can communicate and share electronic resources and information with individuals within their school communities (e.g. pupils). These individuals will be able to receive this information and often collaborate or share information with other if they have access to an Internet connection and a suitable device to facilitate this. Therefore they may be based anywhere such as their home or a library. There are many reasons that may cause a partial or full closure of a school (e.g. flu pandemic/fire ...).

Some of these strategies for comunicating and sharing electronically are more efficient or robust than others. We have outlined the main online strategies below. Click on the link below to go to the appropriate section or use the navigation on the left.
