PARENTS around the country organised and called for a boycott of the wider reopening of schools yesterday amid concerns for safety amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The decision to call for a boycott by Parents4SafeReturn follows “exasperation at the failure” of the government to manage the reopening of schools and nurseries effectively.
In a statement, the group said: “We support our schools and want them to move to a wider opening as soon as it is safe. But the Prime Minister has now made clear he has no intention of listening to the science.
“His plan is not supported [by] the government’s own Sage advice and does not meet its five tests.”
Parents4SafeReturn said that the plan puts all communities at risk and is particularly dangerous for school staff and the most vulnerable in society such as black and minority-ethnic people.
“Every parent’s instinct is to protect their children, but this is not a matter of individual choice but urgent public health,” the statement said.
“The Prime Minister has no evidence to support his assertion that it is safe. No nursery, school or college should move to a wider opening until it is safe.”
