Not sure that is the norm ...…………
My wife is a headteacher , and is working closely with her Academy chain to explore all fair avenues to everybody in this unprecedented period.
Her school has a rota of the senior leadership team in school every day as is a legal requirement , alongside a skeleton staff of T.A's and teachers.
She is having web seminars with whoever is in school each day , as well as with her cluster group within the Academy.
Plans are in place where parent mail is used to keep everybody informed , as well as continuing to offer some sort of education to those children not in. They cannot follow the curriculum at this time , and when the stats fall off the end of the world in 6 months time , no doubt OFSTED will be round with their hatchets out baying for blood.
She currently has a potential of 62 children eligible to attend ( which took an awful lot of time and effort to sort out initially ) and where so far there has been between 2 and 11 children actually attending. They have in place now a scheme where the vouchers for free school meals are being sent out directly to parents.

In her school , anybody who volunteers or is on the rota to cover the Easter holidays will be given lieu holiday to take after Easter , teachers will not receive extra money.

I guess there are Headteachers and then there are Headteachers...……………...

I learned very early on in my teaching that you look after your TA's and your site staff as they are invaluable and when school cuts hit, often the first areas to be squeezed.

Just heard from my mate who is a big Southampton supporter.

Her dad is a lifelong fan. He just had a phone call from Saints defender Jack Stephens asking if he was ok and if he needed anything. They are calling round all the pensioner season ticket holders and left a number for him to call back if he needs any help.



Well done the Saints

Well done Mal. In the school where my missus is a teaching assistant the majority of teachers are doing **** all and leaving it all to the TA's to set and oversea the homework.
Pity they don't take a leaf out of your book.
During the Easter break teachers will be offered extra money on top of the wages to go in but as the pay isn't much the take up isn't expected to be high. TA's are more likely to go in as they don't get paid for holidays.
Anyway to end on a positive well done to the NHS volunteers

Thanks Jon - it's an easy call for me as I live alone and am in good health.

The app that you get shows other volunteers on a local map and there are lots of people signed up already.

Got my email confirmation that I've been signed up to be a nhs helper.

The map around me shows that I'm far from the only one who's done it too

As much as the incredible force the machine was putting out , it was the actual 'tight fit' of the mask she struggled with.

As for my fishing buddy , he has a face like Jaques Cousteau in the morning , the red ring around his face takes about an hour to disappear

The bag it comes with is not much bigger than a large camera bag , but we have to use venues where he can have an extension lead to his bivvy……

Because they’re not paying for it mate
Knowing what I’m paid to, for example, hang the doors you get to a ward; those CPAP machines would not ordinarily be in the 100s.. no chance
I imagine the government will monitor profits. Depends what retooling and material costs are I suppose.
I did some work in a building that made mclaren parts and the whole operation was mind blowing!
Good luck to them, I hope it makes a difference for people suffering

Hi noj,

I think the proper respiratory units probably cost many £1000s because they are large, sophisticated pieces of kit, but the new CPAP units, I saw on the TV news, are small, and look less complicated devices, which I would hazard a guess will cost in the £100s, and probably be considered cost effective.
Given the conversion of buildings into Nightingale hospitals and the return of 20000 retired doctors and nurses etc. it seems the government isn't much focused on cost restraint.

I’d have thought every hospital with maternity facilities has them too, or at least paediatric special care units.
Probably priced beyond the means of some trusts, like most things to do with healthcare. It’s almost time to put the old cash cow out to pasture and actually invest in care

Hi Croc,

Having read some info, it seems that CPAP devices are mainly used for people with sleep apnea and that some patients find them difficult to get used to. So, your wife having had it applied hour on hour off, seems odd and not user friendly.
It seems they are also used for patients that can use their lungs to breathe, but are not getting enough oxygen, like with asthma and COPD. Obviously they are being made to help combat the virus pandemic, because the NHS doesn't have that many of them. I have COPD and in the high risk category, so am pleased they are due to be massed produced and in my case, for future reference. It's interesting that mobile devices are also available for use at home and, perhaps, as you said, even when fishing.

BB.

I cannot describe how she found the strength to fight them every time they put the mask on....She hated it.

All a distant memory now though

round of applause for jeff bezos who managed to make £4.25bn by short selling his amazon stock just two weeks before this pandemic hit - no suggestion he did anything wrong of course, his timing is just naturally great. Stelios at easyjet also giving himself £60 mil dividends in feb 2020 also a highlight. Almost as if they knew something was up. Made my day anyway x
