You will have already spoken with your manager about how comfortable you feel about returning. We will, where possible, prioritise those who are ready and willing to return to work in the first instance. The managers have been working hard to liaise with parents to find out which children are looking to return, when, and on what patterns. It may be more important for some employees to return sooner rather than later (those with key children, seniors, deputies etc) to make the settling in and transition for our children as comfortable as possible.

We will look to provide you with as much notice of your return as possible and work with you about any concerns or challenges you may have about returning. Should you have any legitimate concerns (anxiety, shielding, living with a vulnerable person), we will work closely with you on a one to one basis to find the best way forward.
