Coronavirus Update

I hope that you are all well and that you have been receiving the general ebulletins we have been issuing.

This communication, however, is specifically for members working in independent schools and third sector establishments, including those who are part of the new EIS-NEU joint membership platform, as your specific employment contexts can vary significantly from colleagues employed by local authorities.

Issues in regard to COVID-19 evolve at a pace. This briefing aims to give up to date information, as of today.

To assist members in the independent and third sectors, National Officer Stuart Brown will serve as a contact point for queries or issues. Stuart's email is Please do not hesitate to contact Stuart if you have specific concerns.

In the meantime, I hope that you manage to get some well-earned respite over the Easter break, lockdown provisos notwithstanding.

Best wishes

Larry Flanagan
General Secretary
