Fully fund schools for Covid-19 costs and provide relief for loss of income
Without delay, for government to:
• agree to reimburse schools' exceptional costs associated with Covid-19 measures
• reimburse schools' lost income from Covid-19 (eg. rental/lettings)
• guarantee reimbursements will be paid directly to schools for financial years 2020/21, 2021/22, as required
This term, schools are facing increasing Covid costs, in addition to those incurred between March and June.
Costs include: supply staff, materials, cleaning, ventilation systems, handwashing stations, improved IT and training to enable blended learning.
Schools have simultaneously lost income, unable to let premises. Unlike businesses, schools are not eligible for grants to alleviate such pressures.
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.
