The TUC education unions are to agree a joint position on returning to schools in response to last nights additional guidance from the Department for Education (England) on schools opening.
Until then we would advise members not to engage with planning for a return to school on 1st June 2020.
Look out for the statement coming soon. Attached are several links to published guidance by the DfE on preparing to send children back to school as both parents and education workers.
