Commenting on media reports about the Government's plans for reopening schools more widely in September, NASUWT General Secretary Dr Patrick Roach said: 

“The NASUWT wants to see schools open to all children as soon as it is safe to do so.

“However, we remain concerned that the Government continues to set arbitrary dates for the return of pupils to schools, without providing the necessary evidence that its plans will not undermine public health or the health and safety of children, young people and staff in schools.

“Ministers have yet to demonstrate how their plans to increase the size of classroom ‘bubbles’ will ensure the health and safety of pupils and staff or provide a basis for effective teaching and learning to take place.

“Schools and colleges are also workplaces and the Government must take seriously the concerns of teachers who must be assured that their health and safety is not being put at risk.”
