Claire Padgett started this petition to Department of Education

After the announcement this evening regarding another national lockdown and the closure of schools I feel action must be taken to give our children the best possible chance with their future education. The announcement stated that examinations will be postponed in the Summer as students have not received the correct level of education to give them the best chance. This should be the same for all year groups especially children who are only just embarking on their education pathway particularly when they have already been denied half a school year of pre school and indeed across every other year.

Learning to read and write are the starting blocks that all children need. This should be taught by teachers in a teaching environment, not by parents who are juggling trying to work, homeschool and in many cases look after younger siblings all at the same time. The results are never going to be the same as children learning in a classroom environment.

They are also losing valuable time building friendships and rapport with other children. Education is the baseline for our children’s futures, it should be a priority for the Government and Department of Education to address this. Set them back a year and give them full access to the education they have already been denied.
