Guidance on Supporting Staff to Return to Schools

Date published: 09 July 2020

As COVID-19 restrictions are eased, schools will be reopening for pupils and staff will be returning to schools.  This guidance includes key considerations and responsibilities and sets expectations on how to support staff returning to the work place. 

Details

This guidance is to be read alongside the latest Public Health Agency (PHA) /Government guidance, to support Principals/line managers and staff when planning their return to the work place.  In particular, we draw your attention to the recently published, Northern Ireland Re-opening School Guidance - New School Day.

This guidance includes key considerations and responsibilities and sets expectations on how to support staff returning to the work place. It should be used to supplement any specific guidance and social distancing protocols linked to schools and it recognises that for the majority of school based staff it may not be feasible to work from home. 

This guidance will be kept under review and updated in line with PHA or N.I. Executive changes.
