UNISON in Schools response to government plan for schools in September 2020

The UK government have produced a detailed plan for all children and young people to return to full time education in September 2020.

“Current restrictions on group sizes will be lifted to allow schools, colleges and nurseries to fully reopen to all children and young people, as Covid-19 infection rates continue to fall.

Covid-19 secure measures will remain in place to reduce the risk of transmission, with schools being asked to keep children in class or year group sized ‘bubbles’ and encourage older children to keep their distance from each other and staff where possible. This is alongside protective measures such as regular cleaning and hand washing.”

Unison in schools have responded via a press release today and an email will be sent to all school support staff members on Monday 6th July 2020.
