Prevent spread of Covid in schools with planned breaks through the school term.
Regular, short, planned circuit breaks through the term in primary schools with well organised online teaching at home to PREVENT large outbreaks of Corona Virus in schools. Vulnerable children and those without access to online teaching to be taught in small groups in school.
The rise in infections in some schools escalated up to the Christmas break. With the 2 week break for Christmas hopefully the situation has improved. However, isolating classes during an outbreak is harmful: the vulnerable children and those without access to online lessons also isolate so are being denied safety and education. Children feel insecure because life is unpredictable, parents have to find ways of delivering and collecting siblings when one child isolates. We need to be pro active.
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.
