RESEARCH by two of Scotland’s teaching unions shows a significant number of school staff do not feel supported at work during the coronavirus pandemic.
Both the NASUWT and the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) have raised concerns with the Scottish government over the results of member surveys.
The NASUWT found serious concerns over the adequacy of the health and safety measures in place, with 85 per cent of those questioned calling for blended or remote learning to be introduced.
More than three-quarters of members also did not feel the government is providing the necessary support for them and their school.
The EIS found similar feelings among its members, with fewer than one-third of teachers indicating they feel safe in school.
NASUWT Scotland national official Jane Peckham said: “It is now incumbent on government to fulfil its responsibilities to protect children, young people and all those who work in our schools.”
