Testing in schools – Government wakes up to fact schools are major centre of transmission for Covid.4 min read
While mass testing in some secondary schools in London, and parts of Kent and Essex is a start, the Government must urgently address those other parts of the country where infection rates remain high, teachers and school leaders’ unions say.
Teachers and school leaders’ unions respectively call on the government to close schools and colleges during the 4-week national lockdown and on transparency about the risks to children, families and school staff in keeping them open.
The National Education Union is asking people to support and sign an open letter to the Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson, calling upon him to eradicate holiday hunger by providing Free School Meals to all children who need them over the school holidays.
In the face of rapidly rising coronavirus infection levels amongst secondary pupils, the National Education Union is calling for an urgent circuit breaker to suppress Covid cases.
