Joint union planning guidance for Secondary and Special Schools

Joint union planning guidance for Secondary Schools

This joint commentary and checklist follows the expected structure of the DfE Planning Guide for Secondary Schools and will assist reps in secondary schools in challenging what is being unrealistically expected of school leaders.

At the time of writing the publication of the DfE Planning Guide for Secondary Schools has been delayed but given the urgency the joint unions are publishing this joint commentary and checklist so that that union reps can begin to work closely with unions, staff and parents when developing their plans for extended opening when it is safe to do so.

Regardless of the DfE approach, it sets out stringent standards which need to be met. If the final DfE guide is substantially different from what we expect, further guidance will follow.
