UNISON, NEU, GMB and Unite have published several updated guidance documents to reflect changes to safety measures in school settings in England:
- Guidance for ‘staff at greater risk’ in schools and early years settings
- Risk assessment checklist
- Ventilation guidance in schools
The Government has chosen to remove most Covid safety measures in education and early years settings in England, a decision that UNISON strongly opposes. We are concerned it may well lead to an increase in Covid-19 cases and cause disruption in schools, particularly as most pupils are not currently being offered the vaccine and community rates are high.
Each of the three guidance documents can be viewed and downloaded below:
