Following representations from the INTO seeking clarification in relation to pregnant and high risk teachers, we are aware of press reports that these staff will continue to work from home to the end of the school year. The media reports state that the updated public health advice continues to advise members who are pregnant to continue working from home and further suggests that this arrangement may remain in place for the remainder of the school term.
We expect further guidance on this important matter to issue by way of an information note from the department in the coming days. A member update will be provided once this guidance is available.
Members are urged to await the publication of guidance on this matter before contacting the INTO QueryLine as staff will not be in a position to provide advice on this matter until that time.
