Allow temporary homeschooling during the pandemic without losing school place
Allow families to homeschool without losing their child’s school place during the pandemic. Parents/guardians who can provide a satisfactory plan to educate their children at home (in instances where there are no safeguarding concerns) should be permitted to do so.
Parents/guardians, particularity those in the at risk category, should not be in the position where they either send their child to school or lose their place. Many families have extra health concerns and should be allowed the option to homeschool temporarily during the pandemic. This would free up extra space for the children who do need to go to school to social distance. It is unacceptable to force children to go to school when the personal and societal risks are currently unquantifiable.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
