Created on: 08 Jun 2020 | Last modified: 20 Apr 2023

In response to the specific concerns about the risk for Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) members returning to schools in Scotland while the Covid 19 virus remains a threat, the EIS has produced this guidance.

The EIS understands this is a very emotionally stressful, worrying and isolating time for many of our members. The mental health impacts of Covid19 should not be underestimated.

This guidance is intended to be used by BAME members, outlining the existing guidance and evidence and to give you some tools to support you in keeping safe, as well as mentally and emotionally well.
