Head Teachers, teacher, support assistants, secretaries, office managers in fact any adult that works in a school has a right to be safe. No e of us are saying children's education does not matter. What we are saying is our lives matter. The measures in school clearly are not protecting the adults and the government needs to stop hiding behind the children and start acknowledging how many adults in school have been affected by COVID and how many adults that have also been affected in their household and immediate circle. We want schools to stay open but with the right resources to do so. That means additional funding to enable schools to have a mix of learning lessening the number of adults that in a given place. As government ministers you have the ability to work from home...we don't. Know acknowledge the impact on adults in schools and cease this dribble that children are not affected or only mildly affected. This is maybe true for primary school but is certainly not the case of secondary schools and clearly not the case for universities. We too have vulnerable adults in our own households that need to be protected. We can not protect them working in the conditions we are being forced to.
