Government must use the time schools are closed to make them safer
The government mustn’t squander the time between now and early March to improve the safety of schools for pupils and staff, says UNISON today (Wednesday). Everyone wants schools to reopen fully as soon as possible, but this must be safely, says the union. Today’s announcement buys valuable time for ministers to work with unions to make sure that when schools do finally open to all children, they stay open, adds UNISON. Offering the vaccine to all school employees as well as a regular system of mass testing of staff and pupils are key to getting schools back to normal, UNISON says. UNISON head of educa...
