People are dying. At a faster rate at this stage of the virus faster than they were in china or Italy. The health service needs all the staff it can to help save lives, so if this means some teachers have to work then so be it. Any that are in the high risk catagory should self isolate themselves and leave it to the healthier teachers. As for them moaning about pre booked holidays, quite frankly suck it up. This is a unique situation where people need to pull together and do what they can if they can help, not moan about it. If they can't come up with a better solution then pipe down and do your job to the best of your ability, follow the guidelines, and make the best of a horrendous situation

Teachers are not even being allowed to go on pre booked holidays.

I’m not sure how it works at the moment but teachers get paid 52 weeks of the year and so they should be given a nominated amount of annual leave let’s say for instance 5 weeks. School holidays are about 12 weeks a year so for 5 weeks their time is their own to do whatever they please, these weeks should be booked and documented. The other 7 weeks the teachers should be preparing, marking or doing whatever they do.
As I say I’m not sure what happens at the moment but with the above in place then cancelling annual leave should never happen.

Close the schools … to every body . FULL STOP.

These parents make arrangements for care during school closures be it planned term breaks or weeks off for unexpected snow etc.
What makes a teacher less likely to get the symptoms than another family member ???


People are dying and we must all do whatever it takes...…………….. Not sure teaching staff should come under front line response ………..they didn't sign up for health care !!!

As per standard Government kneejerk response ……...Lets lay it at the teachers door...….

This is the worst thought out action any Prime Minister could have come up with.
Is there a realistic alternative? It's not like there's much choice in the matter imo. People are dying and we must all do whatever it takes.

I think the unions are going to kick off.
I wouldn't put it past them.

NO CHOICE for schools.

My wife is a head teacher , and she has been told ………….

schools have to remain open for these 'key worker ' kids during the up coming Easter break and continuing through the summer holiday if need be.
I think the unions are going to kick off..

Teachers are not even being allowed to go on pre booked holidays.

She is actually in the 'at risk ' group herself , having undergone 2 lots of open heart surgery and has a pacemaker and artificial mitral valve...………..

This is the worst thought out action any Prime Minister could have come up with.

She will have to go on the 'rota' along with all of her staff . They cannot continue to teach the curriculum as so many kids will be missing , so she is going back to basics and offering classes that over the years Ofsted have cut out , things like , music , art , more PE ……………

Pretty much a very highly paid baby sitter ! ! ! !

As someone that used to work in care I’ve taken risks before but for obvious reasons stated before I wouldn’t again.

FWIW she’s going go into work if needed but I wouldn’t blame her or anyone if they decided not to.

So thanks for clearing it up that you’re only allowed ask a question providing of course you don’t give your thoughts.

The way you wrote the initial post does come across a bit "I ain't takin a risk to look after their effin kids, I'll see em in court"

It's still unclear how it's going to work, either for key workers or sen kids,

Then again they do have a choice of no or yes to do it.

Do teachers have a choice? If precautions are taken and it's deemed that risks have been minimised then do they have a choice of not turning up for work but still expect to be paid?

Interesting to read other people’s views on this, that’s why i asked.

It may come as a shock but teachers aren't stupid... (mostly)

The request for staff to supervise smaller cohorts of children is made with the understanding that some staff may be single and healthy whilst others may have family and health considerations

Those who volunteer will do so without pressure and with a real desire to do what is best for the students and their families and their fellow staff members. Senior management will be stepping up to do their part too.

Who's going to care for your already sick kids and all the other patients that have the usual ailments (they haven't gone away) if there's no-one working in the health care system cause they're at home looking after their children, cause there's no teacher's to open a few critical schools?
Why ask the rhetorical question in post 265 then?

That’s ok for the teacher then to take it back home to their family......

Then again they do have a choice of no or yes to do it.

Personally with my poor families health ‘child with a brain tumour along with a fcuked up immune system’ that struggles to fight off infections etc etc which would probably kill her then NO I wouldn’t do it.

Petty someone didn’t think to think on before getting accused with that old saying ‘I’m allright Jack’. Not you I might add.
