Updated staffing in schools guidance 30 April
07 May 2021
We conducted a review of our staffing guidance over the Easter break.
We have checked the links and updated them where needed and the flow charts to the latest versions.
Two sections removed
There are two sections which have now been removed, these are:
- The old section 11 – which was about non-Covid sickness and how to deal, I do not feel that this is needed anymore as we resume to a more BAU state and we get very little, if any, queries now about this
- The old section 19 – which was about staff who have (other) paid employment as carers with CEV or CV people – again, we have only had one query (since the start of the pandemic) in this regard.
All other sections are retained and that includes the advice on pregnant staff which maintains a very cautious approach and included the latest link to Govt advice on vaccinations for pregnant women.
I imagine as we reach milestones in the government’s ‘roadmap’, further changes may be necessary.
