Government set for clash over plans to reopen schools

Guidance on coronavirus and a place to share concerns and support
Boris Johnson says he wants some pupils to return to the classroom from June 1, with reports claiming class sizes will be halved and some children could be sent to neighbouring schools

These ideas haven't been thought through!!!
Track and trace should be firmly in place before opening of schools.

The daily death figures should also be consistently low and falling.

Anything else is madness.

Even when they do open children are not realistically going to be able to be in school full time due to social distancing measures, which in effect means the parents on the whole won't be able to work.

Add into the mix patents who have more than one child, some will be at school, others not.


After whats gone on with the care homes anyone would be a fool to trust the government.


As many other countries have done better than us in all aspects of the virus
why don't we copy them as to how they are returning children to school ?

We were told once that we had the best scientific brains in the World. So why are we
in a pickle?



I have heard other countries have larger classrooms and countries such as Denmark waited until deaths or new cases were very low. I imagine other countries already had track and trace in place.

What our country has been doing is shambolic and that's putting it politely.

I couldn't put what I really think here.
A friend is a teaching assistant at a local school, they have worked out how to have classes of 15 by using rooms differently, and they are all going to have training days beforehand.
Whilst it would be great if everyone could stay home, some people like my son working for the council are working harder than ever to make sure the community services are all running smoothly. You'd all be up in arms if your bin wasn't collected, wouldn't you?
Economically the last few weeks have been a huge burden on the country's finances, and we will all be paying in one way or another for the rest of our lives, and for carers and carees that is going to mean even less services than usual.
The country can't get back to normal until women are able to go to work, nearly every woman works these days.
Yes, it's risky. I'll be at risk as my son and his partner have separated and co parent my grandson, who is at my house a lot.
I'm due to fly to Greece on holiday later in the year, whether or not I go may be a personal decision, if the plane goes and I don't, I will not get a refund.
We take risks every day of our lives, there are risks even at home.
How we each manage risk in the next few months is going to be a difficult balancing act between economic necessity, fear, and feelings, rational or not.
