Introducing: The Store
The Lambeth Schools Partnership (LSP) is very excited to announce the launch of 'The Store'.
The Store is set to revolutionise the customer buying experience on the LSP website. The Store will replicate other e-commerce websites with great emphasis on products, packages and contracts themselves, allowing customers to navigate and understand products, packages and contracts better.

What will The Store look like?
As a basic overview, we have created a poster which is attached to this article. The poster features screenshots and explanations of some of the most prominent changes and additions.
Please note, these screenshots were provided by our website supplier so they won’t exactly match the content or style we have with GCCPlus but are a good first visual.

What does this mean for you?
These changes are nothing to worry about. The changes will make navigation easier while providing a deeper understanding of each product, packages and contract
a service provider has available for purchase. The Store will function and flow similarly to other e-commerce websites such as Amazon
In the coming months, we will be producing a catalogue of 'How To' videos to help with navigating The Store.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding The Store please don't hesitate to contact us.

Lambeth Education & Learning Strategy 2018-2022
We want Lambeth to continue to be at the forefront of change and improvement in education, retaining good relationships between education providers and the Council and building on our collective strengths and achievements. To do this, the strategy has been developed in partnership with schools, other educational establishments and the Council.
It looks ahead to the next few years and outlines our shared ambition for our learners of all ages. It summarises the overarching strategy for education and learning in Lambeth between 2018-2022 with the aim to improve performance for all Lambeth pupils and support adults to develop the skills to succeed in the workplace and fulfil their ambitions.
Please find our Lambeth’s Education and Learning Strategy 2018-22 attached.
If you require further copies please download copies from the website.
We hope you find the strategy a useful and informative resource.

Public Health England advice on winter readiness for schools/Business Continuity Planning/Procedure to follow if your school has to close unexpectedly
With the weather getting colder and extreme weather alerts across the country, just a reminder of of our advice and guidance to help with your decision making.
Please ensure your Premises Officer is aware of this advice.
Winter-readiness information for London schools and nurseries from Public Health England
Public Health England has published updated advice for schools and nurseries in London, which can be downloaded from the downloads section to the right.
As winter approaches, it is important that schools are reminded and updated on important health considerations for their pupils/students, parents/carers and staff. Pupils and staff in schools are particularly susceptible to infections which increase over the winter months, such as seasonal influenza (flu) and stomach infections (such as norovirus). These can be very infectious and cause outbreaks in school settings due to the close contact amongst pupils and staff. The spread of these illnesses can be limited by improving infection control practices within the school.
Young children and/or those with chronic illnesses are also at risk of developing complications from certain vaccine-preventable infections such as measles and flu. It is important that they are immunised to prevent any complications and to reduce the likelihood of outbreaks in a school setting.
The briefing includes:
Key messages for headteachers on winter preparedness
Two checklists on flu and norovirus readiness and when and how to report outbreaks
Leaflets and further information on flu, norovirus and meningitis.
Business Continuity Planning
Don’t forget to update your business continuity/resilience plans, which should include an update of your emergency contact details for parents.
We have put together a brief guidance note on what to look for when deciding how best to protect your buildings against the potential damage that can be caused by severe weather conditions.
Please ensure that you have a suitable amount of grit/salt available. We would assume that you already have contact details of your local suppliers.
Check for any current external leaks and attend to them as soon as possible.
Consider insulating any external taps and water faucets to protect them from freezing and possibly becoming brittle.
Inspect drainage areas to ensure they are clear of debris and that any potential surface water can disperse and not be allowed to stand and freeze to become a hazard to any persons entering the area.
Do you have roof top water storage? Consider a quick inspection to ensure that current insulation is in good condition and fit for purpose.
Consider leaving the boilers turned on overnight at the lowest setting. This may help with combating the cold weather and to minimize the risk of pipes freezing and losing important ceiling space heat.
In case of an emergency, ensure that telephone numbers for engineers or utilities services are easily available.
The list above is by no means exhaustive and as each site is different there could possibly be issues that are localised to your area. In this instance we would recommend that you refer to your business continuity/resilience plan.
Procedure to follow if your school has to close unexpectedly (for example, due to heating issues or snow)
This is a reminder about the proforma you should complete if your school has to close unexpectedly for any reason, for example, staff sickness, problems with the building, strike action etc, which can also be downloaded from the downloads section on the right.
Please ensure that you email the completed proforma to email@example.com and it will automatically be sent on to all Council officers who need to be aware of the closure. Please note that this proforma should not be used for planned school closures (building works etc that the school has itself organised); or for closure in the event of a civil emergency or critical incident; or for out of working hours emergencies.
The emergency procedures are set out on page 2 of the proforma and are as follows:
Out-of-Working Hours Emergencies
Out of hours emergencies must be reported to the Council via the main switchboard on 020 7926 1000 – which operates on a 24 hour rota every day of the year.
Major or Critical Incidents
Notification of a major incident, either during or outside normal working hours, must be reported directly to the Council via the main switchboard on 020 7926 1000 - which operates on a 24 hour rota every day of the year.
Where a major incident has occurred, the Headteacher (or their representative) should also contact the Director of Education and Learning, so that the relevant support can be provided.
If you have any queries regarding business continuity/emergency planning matters, please contact:
Business Continuity and Resilience Officer
