As our schools and nurseries return to being open for all children and young people, we know education staff as well as parents and carers will be anxious.
With our Trade Union colleagues we want to assure everyone that we are doing all that we can to continue to make the return as safe as it can be. By working closely together we can all ensure that we minimise the risk to ourselves and to others. Whether a teacher, a janitor, a cleaner, a caterer, a support assistant, an early years practitioner, an administration worker or one of the other vital roles that make sure education is delivered daily, the key to safe work places is leading by example. We must remind ourselves and each other what can keep us safe by follow FACTS and by reaching out for support where you are uncertain.
We thank everyone for playing their part and doing all that you can to keep each other safe whilst delivering everyday essential services.
