Schools, as employers, must take steps to ensure their premises are covid-19 secure and follow the system of controls set out in the Department for Education’s guidance. In particular, school leaders need to decide on how their staff can work safely.
Our ongoing advice is that schools should continue to assess individual members of staff who may be at increased covid-19 risk and put reasonable adjustments in place, especially for those staff with serious medical conditions and caring responsibilities.
To help our members, we’ve developed the following advice as an approach to supporting vulnerable and concerned members of staff in their return to school.
