The NASUWT is continuing to engage with Ministers, Government officials and employers following the opening of schools and other educational settings and is raising directly any issues and concerns of members.

Based on the issues and concerns most frequently raised by members with the Union, the NASUWT has produced a template reporting form for members to report any incidents where Covid-19 safety arrangements are breached or their employer fails to implement them. Members can download and complete this form to send to their headteacher/principal outlining their concerns and are asked to send a copy of the form to the NASUWT Member Support Advice Team.

Members should also consult the Health and Safety Checklist on the right/below which sets out the safety measures and steps the NASUWT would expect employers to have in place for the new academic year.

Further advice and resources on the return to school can also be found on this page.

The NASUWT has written to every employer, advising them of their legal obligations to their employees, reserving our members’ legal rights and entitlements and setting out the actions we expect them to take to safeguard the health and welfare of staff.

If members have concerns about the measures taken in their workplace, they should contact the NASUWT Member Support Advice Team for further help and support.
