It is recognised by the DfE that more staff will be needed at school when opening is extended, so it may be more difficult to maintain the same level of remote learning provision for pupils in year groups not eligible to attend.
Questions for reps to ask:
- What arrangements will be in place for year groups not eligible to attend?
- What arrangements will be in place for pupils with underlying health conditions who cannot attend when the rest of their year group may be in school?
- How will the senior leadership team (SLT) ensure that any change in opening arrangements does not increase workload for staff whether working at home or at school?
Are you satisfied that the school will be able to operate on both levels with the staffing available and without increasing the pressure on staff when extended opening begins? Yes / No
