SSTA Advice – 4 January 2021

The First Minister is introducing new laws that will require people to stay at home and work from home where possible from 5 January.

There is now confusion is some areas as some schools and local authorities are still instructing teachers to attend school in person this week when pupils are nor present (See advice below).

The SSTA advises members that:

  1. Teachers should only attend school if they have been assigned child supervision duties
  2. All meetings should be conducted remotely
  3. Teachers should be allowed to prepare for remote learning from home. Should teachers need to collect materials from school then arrangements should be made to limit the number of people in the school buildings at all times.
