Update protocol secondary education available
The protocol for secondary education has been adapted for education after the summer. Pupils no longer have to keep their distance from each other, but they still need to keep their distance from the teaching staff. An exception has been made for practical subjects. The school management must then enter into dialogue with the teachers and support staff involved.
Secondary schools will have more space from 1 July - but in practice this will be after the summer holidays students among themselves no longer having to keep your distance. "That means that all students can go to school on all days," says the protocol.
The unions have drawn up a protocol with the secondary school council to help schools implement all new agreements. In practical subjects, such as technology, crafts and gym, there is more contact between teachers and students. Although the distance rule should be adhered to as much as possible, exceptions are allowed. The RIVM allows a deviation from the national measures, according to the protocol. AObdirector Henrik de Moel: “There must be a discussion about this between educational staff and managers. They can never be forced. For example, look at how the course can be filled in in a different way. ”
Personnel belonging to a risk group or having family in that group are advised not to come to the school. Even then, consultation between employee and employer is necessary to make agreements about working remotely.
According to De Moel, it is a profit that teachers no longer have to combine distance learning and physical education after the summer. “That happened now because some of the students were at home. With a laptop in the classroom. It resulted in an increased workload. ” Distance learning is only really possible if too few teachers can come to work at the location.
