NEU report: Coronavirus, Pupils and Schools: Unanswered Questions – 9th May 2020
Over the last six weeks, the National Education Union has been writing to the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Education. They have outlined concerns from members, parents and carers of children and believe that the government must share its evidence and modelling, especially if they want schools to be opened in the near future. Despite this, the government has not responded to the NEU. All questions put to the government can be read in this report here. If you are a parent in Woking and have worries or concerns on the safety of school re-openings, please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
School-made PPE Visors (in the absence of PPE from government) – 8th May 2020
Andy Berriman, Woking Labour member and teacher at Three Rivers Academy Secondary School in Hersham, has been working with other schools to make plastic PEE visors for local NHS services and care-homes. So far, his team has made over 1500 PPE visors and delivered to over 35 organisations. This is a fantastic example of how local members of the community have rallied together to help make a difference. Read Andy’s message here!
