Date published: 12 August 2020

Last updated: 31 August 2022

This guidance includes key considerations and responsibilities and sets expectations on how to support staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. 


This guidance is to be read alongside the latest Public Health Agency (PHA)/Government guidance and should be used to supplement any specific guidance and social distancing protocols linked to schools. 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 NI Executive changes.
