THE NASUWT has renewed its warning against ending the closure of schools too early, saying that teachers remained “far from convinced” that it can be done safely.
The teachers’ union called on Education Secretary Gavin Williamson today to provide evidence and information to justify the decision to start reopening schools from June 1.
About 95 per cent of teachers expressed concern and anxiety about the government’s plans, while 93 per cent found them confusing, according to a survey by the union.
NASUWT general secretary Dr Patrick Roach said that no teacher and pupil should be expected to return to school until it is safe to do so. He called on ministers to engage in urgent and detailed discussions.
“The results of our survey underscore the fact that the government has thus far failed to win the trust and confidence of teachers about the safety of reopening schools,” Dr Roach said.
“It is now imperative that the government takes every available opportunity to provide the necessary assurances that teachers are seeking.”
Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will speak at a public meeting of the Healthworker Coronavirus Activists Group today to discuss the government plans. The National Education Union will also take part.
