Education re-introduces package of enhanced measures from tomorrow

Share this page

Wednesday 16 March 2022

Education is re-introducing its package of enhanced measures from tomorrow (Thursday 17th March 2022) to help alleviate pressures in settings because of the current wave of COVID-19 infections.

These measures have been developed in consultation with Public Health and are designed to support the priority objective of keeping educational schools and settings fully operational and therefore minimising any disruption to young people's education.

While there might be slight variations at each setting depending on their specific circumstances and operational needs, the suite of measures includes:

Schools will contact parents and carers to provide further information relevant to the implementation of these measures at their child's school.

Nick Hynes, Director of Education, said:

'This is undoubtedly a challenging time for education settings, which is also being experienced by other essential services and private companies, due to the number of positive cases at the moment. A number of our schools and settings currently have staffing concerns and we all remain focused on managing disruption as a result of absences while maintaining our absolute focus of keeping settings open and delivering education.

'This package of enhanced measures will be familiar to our staff, students and parents and carers as we are not introducing anything now that hasn't been in place before. When we have had to revert to these enhanced measures previously, it has served us well so I'm hopeful that they can do so again as long as we continue to have the support of all involved in the delivery of education. I am sure that will be the case so I again take this opportunity to thank all staff and the community in advance for working with us to ensure these measures have the desired impact.'
