Back to School ?!

There are a number of debates surrounding particular issues concerning children returning to school next week.

 

> Should children wear masks? The World Health Organisation (WHO) says if the child is over 12 and in crowded situations, so not Primary Schools. 

'In local lockdown areas children in year 7 and above should wear face coverings in communal spaces. Outside of local lockdown areas face coverings won't be required in schools, though schools will have the flexibility to introduce measures if they believe it is right in their specific circumstances'.

A petition to make face masks manadory in schools has attracted over 16,000 signatures so far. Sign here.

 

> Do I have to send my child to school? (BBC 24th August) Yes, parents do but there are a number of 'ifs' and 'buts'.

 

> Does my school follow the official government guidance?

 

> Is it possible for our school to carry out that guidance?

 

> What happens if the Government plans fail? The National Education Union have developed a 10-point Education Recovery Plan
