Do not fully re-open schools until all indoor mixing is safe to be resumed
Since the first lockdown, schools and school openings have been a common debate topic between the government as well as the UK public. Over the November lockdown, schools remained open with up to 32 students per class despite indoor mixing between households being prohibited.
One must mention the impact that this has on mental health. Those with good mental health are already feeling the impacts and those who struggle - may I point to those with anxiety and BPD - are now isolated from their "favourite person" who helps them cope with every day needs. Therefore, as I'm sure many can agree, this simply doesn't make sense. How is it that I can sit in a classroom with people from up to 31 different households yet I cannot see one of my friends for a cup of tea in my kitchen.
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.
