Business Contingency Plan

£31.99

All education, childcare, and children’s social care settings must have emergency plans in place detailing what you would do and how you would respond if you needed to take any temporary actions in the event of an emergency. Your emergency plan should be generic enough to cover a range of potential incidents occurring during and outside normal working hours, including weekends and holidays.

These incidents include:

  • public health incidents (e.g. a significant infectious disease incident)
  • severe weather (e.g. flooding)
  • serious injury to a child, pupil, student, or member of staff (e.g. transport accident)
  • significant damage to property (e.g. fire)
  • criminal activity (e.g. bomb threat)
  • the effects of a disaster in the local community

** This done-for-you template includes the requirements in the Department for Education (DfE) guidance on emergency planning and response for education, childcare, and children’s social care settings and provides an effective all-around business continuity plan for children’s social care.

Description

Aims and Objectives

The government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for children’s social care services was withdrawn on (1 April 2022). Instead, the Department for Education (DfE) is referring to guidance on emergency planning and response for education, childcare, and children’s social care settings.

All education, childcare, and children’s social care settings must have emergency plans in place detailing what you would do and how you would respond if you needed to take any temporary actions in the event of an emergency.

An emergency plan aims to help you and your staff respond effectively to an emergency in the setting or on an educational visit or outing while, where possible, continuing to prioritise and maximise face-to-face learning. Your emergency plan should be generic enough to cover a range of potential incidents occurring during and outside normal working hours, including weekends and holidays.

These incidents include:

  • public health incidents (e.g. a significant infectious disease incident)
  • severe weather (e.g. flooding)
  • serious injury to a child, pupil, student, or member of staff (e.g. transport accident)
  • significant damage to property (e.g. fire)
  • criminal activity (e.g. bomb threat)
  • the effects of a disaster in the local community

** This template includes the requirements in the Department for Education (DfE) guidance on emergency planning and response for education, childcare, and children’s social care settings and provides an effective all-round business continuity plan for children’s social care. 

The purpose of this plan is to:

  • Ensure suitable and sufficient structures are in place to manage business interruptions.
  • Ensure adequate arrangements to minimise the impact of business interruption on the organisation’s service users.
  • Enable the organisation to instigate sound business recovery following a business interruption.
  • Ensure key services continue to be provided to services users/clients.
  • Ensure communication is provided in an accurate and timely manner.
  • Identify changes in working patterns/processes to avoid potential risks.
  • Set up a system for a flexible response to unpredictable events.

This plan is an operational document that should be updated at regular intervals. The plan outlines the general procedures to be taken in a business interruption affecting the organisation’s activities.
