Responding to the announcement on the further reopening of schools, Dr Patrick Roach, NASUWT General Secretary said:

“As the public health situation remains fragile, the Government must demonstrate that it is acting on the evidence to limit the spread of the virus in schools and in the wider community. It is now absolutely essential the government releases the evidence on which it is relying to make today’s announcement.

“The Scottish Government risks ploughing ahead with plans for returning pupils to school without ensuring that essential measures are in place to address concerns regarding safety and workload.

“Significant additional safety measures are still needed to respond to the Covid threat in schools.”

Jane Peckham, NASUWT National Official Scotland said:

“There are increased risks from new and more transmissible variants of the virus and more substantial measures need to be brought forward.

“In particular the NASUWT wishes to see employers use funding from the Scottish Government to support safety mitigations such as CO2 monitors and ensuring ventilation and appropriate facemasks are provided.”
