Ministers must work with school staff and unions to agree safe ways of getting pupils safely back to the classroom in September.
Covid-19 has fundamentally changed the game for everyone when it comes to protecting yourself and your colleagues in the workplace. We are looking to recruit a Safety Representative in each of the over 900 workplaces where we have members.
All the main education trade unions have issued a joint statement today urging the government to rethink plans to ask schools to start to reopen from Monday 1 June.
Following various announcements over the last few days we are receiving lots of calls and emails from our members who work in schools.
Ministers must stop dodging the issue of safety and provide a clear explanation of how schools will keep pupils, staff and parents safe before any mass reopening.
