Commenting on the Education Minister’s announcement about the future of Covid restrictions in schools, Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of NASUWT – The Teachers’ Union, said:
“The NASUWT welcomes the more cautious approach being taken in Wales.
“It is vital that we sustain learner and teacher numbers in schools and a gradual easing of mitigations helps with this without impacting detrimentally on teaching and learning.
“We also welcome the Welsh Government’s approach to the summer examination series.
“The Centre Determined Grades had an appalling impact on teacher workload and wellbeing and we agree that there should only be a move to CDGs as a last resort.”
Neil Butler, National Official for Wales, said:
“We would take issue with the Minister’s assertion that there is a CO2 monitor in every classroom. This is not our experience.
“This was promised by the end of October 2021, but we know that there is still not full coverage across Wales.
“Ventilation continues to be an issue and crude responses such as opening windows and drastically lowering temperatures is impacting on teaching and learning in some schools.”
