Responding to the announcement from the Government that teachers and education staff are not to be prioritised for access to vaccination in the second phase of the vaccine rollout programme, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of the NASUWT, said:

“The Government has said that getting pupils back to school is its number one priority, but is failing to take all steps possible to ensure that this happens and that schools remain open without the risk of further closures or of further damaging disruption to children’s education.

“There is a need for leadership from the Government on this issue. There has been overwhelming support from across the political spectrum for teachers and education staff to be made a priority for vaccinations, including support from the Education Secretary.

“Ministers must now consider what this means for their plans to open schools and keep them open.”
