COVID-19 Response Plan for the safe and sustainable

reopening of Post Primary Schools



A revision of the COVID-19 Response Plan for the safe and sustainable operation of Post Primary Schools is necessary to ensure that it is in compliance with the Government’s Resilience and Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with COVID-19 and the ‘Work Safely Protocol’ which has been developed by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment and the Department of Health with guidance documents provided by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA). 


The ‘Work Safely Protocol’ is a revised version of the ‘Return to Work Safely Protocol’ and contains many of the elements and features of the original guidance but is updated to reflect the latest advice issued by Government and National Health Emergency Team (NPHET) to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.


This Plan has been developed in line with public health advice issued by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HSPC) and in compliance with the “Return to Work Safely Protocols”.
