Update 7th December 2020

NEU CHRISTMAS TREATS

With the end of term approaching , it may be difficult to organise any social events in school, but if you are – or if you want to buy some chocolates, biscuits or other treats for the staffroom we are offering to pay up to £25 from our local budget. If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please send a screenshot of any receipts and your bank details and we will arrange a transfer.

CEV STAFF

The NEU will support any member who wishes to take the option of working from home. Government advice is that CEV people should work from home where possible and we believe that there is currently plenty of work that can be done from home. If there are any CEV colleagues in your school please advise them to get in touch for support.
