Come September the the right to protect your children from Covid-19 to the best of your ability is likely to be removed from parents.

Parliament have made a statement that "children will return to school in september, come what may"  what they havent taken into account is children with extra needs or health problems that could prevent it being a safe return in such a large setting Or even children with no health or extra needs as the virus has hit healthy children and adults. When children return the likelihood is there is going to be siblings. A child in one school will be placed in a "bubble" of 30 and the other sibling(s) could be in another nursery/school that would be in another bubble, there is no guarantee what the other families in the bubbles are doing to maintain social distancing. Each bubble as soon as returning home, could be compromised which would affect the other siblings school before Covid-19 is traced, expanding the risk of infection before symptoms are shown. Children have been affected by Covid-19 and some have sadly lost their lives from Covid-19 or a suspected  related disease to Covid-19 such as Kawasaki disease.

I have a child that has asthma and when he gets poorly the likelihood of it affecting his chest and needing hospital treatment for oxygen and/or nebuliser is very high and that is only with a general chest infection. I personally am not ok with the choice being removed from me and told I have to send him back to school when they cant guarantee his safety against Covid-19 or any possible related disease that can affect children.

 

I wish to create this petition in the hope of it reaching parliament and for it to be taken into debate to ask that they continue to give parents/carers the right to keep their children home and home school them to the best of their ability with the help from the schools, without risk of fines or prosecution until they can guarantee the safety of our children and families. For them to ask us to put our children back into school without choice while they can not guarantee their safety from Covid-19 in the educational setting could prove detrimental for our children and adults and we should be able to maintain the choice to keep children home, especially the children with health problems such as asthma until its proven otherwise without risk of being fined or prosecuted.
