1/ Like HCWs across the UK, #Teachers, school staff & those working in #earlyyears settings, have repeatedly been expected to work with inadequate #PPE, in conditions where the risk of catching #COVID19 is HIGH.
Like too many HCWs across the UK, they have been denied BASIC PROTECTIONS against an #Airborne 🦠.

2/Like so many HCWs across the UK, some have lost their lives or been left with #LongCovid UNNECESSARILY!

& like the families of 1000s of HCWs in the UK, too many are grieving the loss of loved ones that were PREDICTABLE AND AVOIDABLE.

💈WOW 🤩

This school rocks!
We need to reduce #Covid_19 in transmission in schools.

Great to see this headteacher taking a proactive approach to #makeschoolssafe and going beyond the inadequate @educationgovuk guidelines.

We don't want your kids to share our story.
The only way we know how to reduce #longcovid is to avoid #COVID

The idea that children of all ages wouldn’t want to be part of the solution is ludicrous. Give them credit for understanding the seriousness of the situation whilst having the common sense to know that if they #WearAMask IN ALL AREAS of school, their schools will be safer. 1/3
When we look back at this crisis, the fact that children were PREVENTED FROM WEARING 😷s IN UK SCHOOLS in 2021 to protect themselves & those around them from an #airborne 🦠 will be viewed as INCREDIBLE & UNBELIEVABLE!

Please tell us why #PrimeMinister?!

1/14 Morning @SophyRidgeSky, just watched the interviews w/ @DominicRaab @annelongfield @timspector & @bphillipsonMP re #schoolsreopening fully on 8th Mar.

Discussions focused on dates, primary vs secondary, catch up plans, mental health concerns, vulnerable children....

Has the MSM been banned from mentioning mitigation measures?
Are British children/teaching staff different to those across the world?
3/NO FIGURES on how many children get #COVID19?
NO MENTION of how many become seriously ill, are hospitalised or die?
Absolutely NO WORD about the 1 in 7 or 8 children who get #LongCovid!
NO ADVICE for parents of children w/ diseases like Diabetes, severe Asthma etc.

@dgurdasani1, you are a legend 👏!

PLEASE please listen to this from 07.20-40.30.
You will not regret it.

It clearly demonstrates the dangers of those without any CLINICAL knowledge & expertise being able to make crucial decisions that effect so many lives.
1/15 a thread.
Questions for the MODELLERS & MPs...

Have you actually seen a child poorly w/ #COVID19? It can be extremely frightening for both child & parents.

Have you seen/spoken to the parents of any children suffering w/ #LongCovid?
Why not listen to what parents & Drs are saying? 2/
#COVID19 is a multi-system disease with w/ many negative outcomes other than hospitalisation or death.



#LongCovid in both adults & children can be v debilitating & there’s currently v little knowledge about the long term prognosis. 3/.

@BorisJohnson I don’t want your thanks, I am currently working in a preschool, juggling homeschooling 2 children, housework, doing SALT for my daughter, patiently waiting to see how her dyslexia assessment will be done, while terrified my job will give me covid. #closenurseries
You refuse to extend FSM into the holidays despite there being millions of families struggling, those who have lost their jobs, those who are furloughed and not getting their 20% topped up, those solely on benefits, & those like me who has 1 income coming in that’s below the
Living wage with gas and electric bills increasing because we are home so much more using two laptops for school work, and whose food bills are increasing for the same reason, your thanks mr @BorisJohnson do not mean a thing to me when I’m working in the forgotten sector of

Dear @annelongfield,
I read this document with trepidation.
However I am hugely relieved that finally there is acknowledgment that “there is a problem”.
Thank you!
The most important step that can be taken now from a HEALTH PERSPECTIVE is accepting that #COVIDisAirborne. 1/4
Children (& staff) could wash their hands 100x a day & sit in lines facing forwards thinking this will PREVENT #Coronavirus transmission. It won’t.
It will REDUCE transmission but the virus is in the air so ALL @educationgovuk safety measures need to updated accordingly. 2/4
If you could urgently press upon those able to effect change, the HUGE significance of this simple fact, we would actually be able to start to #MakeSchoolSafe. #EarlyYears settings & staff must NOT be excluded. 3/4

And pressure for the NEXT BIG MISTAKE is building already.
MPs who fought tooth & nail to resist #lockdown /restrictions before #Christmas2020 are now actively working w/ a pressure group wanting FULL REOPENING of PRIMARY SCHOOLS WITHOUT MITIGATION for an #airborne virus. 1/5
#UsForThem have influenced Gvmt policy already, w/ dangerous consequences.
They are about to do it again, w/ the FULL BACKING of 12 MPs, some high profile ⬇️. Based on a study that was completed before the #covidvariant took hold, and in a different season no less! 2/
If #earlyyears settings remain open & primary schools fully open w/ such high disease prevalence (& more), & NO attention to #VENTILATION, class sizes, mask use.....there will be 1000s more predictable, avoidable & totally unnecessary deaths in the next few months. 3/

1/11 🧵 Just watched @BBCPolitics in utter dismay!

Waiting/hoping for SOMEONE to mention #VENTILATION or kids wearing #MasksInClassrooms, using EXTRA spaces to create #SafeSpacesToLearn...etc
Have all commentators been forbidden to mention these options, have they been gagged?
2/ If this ⬇️ is SAGE’s own assessment in Dec20.
3/ And we think this ⬇️ regarding risk dependent on location, time, masks etc.

1/ 7🧵W/ respect @halfon4harlowMP ... do you accept that being INDOORS in CROWDED rooms W/ few ppl wearing #masks is HIGH RISK?
So how can #schools NOT be HIGH RISK?
Are you suggesting staff/pupils/families have superior immune systems?
2/7 #COVID19 risk in various settings.

Morning @JuliaHB1,
I’m not a teacher, a parent of school/nursery age children or a union member. I’m a dr & have worked throughout the #pandemic & have seen #COVID19 up close. As you know it can result in significant illness, hospital admission, death or cause #LongCovid. 1/10🧵
This isn’t a disease we should want ANYONE to catch.
Thankfully v few kids are seriously affected but they are getting #LongCovid.
Currently across all healthcare settings ⬆️ numbers of previously fit, younger ppl need care/being admitted w/ severe #COVID19, some have died. 2/
This is what we understand about risk in various indoor & outdoor settings ⬇️.3/ Image

🧵1/6 ALL of us have a connection to a school/ #earlyyears setting. We ALL want to see better control of #COVID19 in the UK & avoid another #lockdown.
So ALL of us should be demanding that #schools/nurseries are made S.A.F.E.R.
2/....protecting staff, pupils, families & communities.
How long do we have to wait for the Gvmt to offer/allow adequate mitigation for an airborne virus that’s caused 1000s of AVOIDABLE DEATHS, countless cases of #LongCovid & economic devastation?
How many ppl need to die?
3/If @BorisJohnson won’t protect us,we must protect each other.
Write to your MP/local council asking for #SafeEdForAll
Advice ALL kids >6yrs going to school #WearAMask.
ALLOW staff to wear #MasksInClassrooms. Teaching won’t be perfect but the current situation’s isn’t either.

And while you’re at it @piersmorgan @Peston @SamCoatesSky @maitlis & @krishgm can you explain to them that the virus won’t go away just because the “old & vulnerable” have been vaccinated. It will continue to spread through communities until ADEQUATE SAFETY measures are in place.
As we’re seeing now on “the frontline” WHOLE FAMILIES are infected. The combination of advice to #schools/#earlyyears & #Christmas/#NewYear created repeated family #SuperSpreaderEvents of monumental proportions.
There are young ppl who’re sick & in ITU. More cases = more v sick.
INDOOR workplaces are NOT #CovidSecure .
#Schools & #earlyyears settings are NOT #CovidSecure.
Too many ppl are travelling, to many work outside their home & are in education/childcare.
Look at the roads,the #Tube this morning.

Why I love learning.
Personal reflections from an #ActuallyAutistic perspective.
I realised I loved learning at nursery school. I pressed my painted palms onto sugar paper and slid smooth wooden beads on an abacus. I sat on a vintage tractor in the grounds and marvelled at its mechanics. To learn was to wonder.
I loved the fabric of the building. A small human sized door set in a large wooden gate. My coat peg with its sunflower motif. The canvas and metal camp beds we slept on after lunch. Collaborating with my cousin David, who helped do up my buttons, while I tied his shoe laces.

Here’s few reasons @krishgm
1) Govt want parents to work. They need to maintain the illusion that “Schools are safe”. If parents are in doubt they may not send their kids & will be unable to work.
2)They’ve failed SPECTACULARLY to provide enough #laptops & #Wifi for kids without
After 9 months they’ve supplied “world beatingly” low numbers meaning teachers can’t easily move to #blendedlearning .
So classes are fuller with many children who’ve no access to a laptop or WiFi, or a space to learn, compounding the issue of transmission again.
3)If Govt admit schools are places with high transmission of #coronavirus they will be forced to mandate #MasksInClassrooms. This will be very unpopular within many freedom loving @Conservatives MPs & the RW media who are chomping at the bit to “unlock”!

@MattHancock says yet again that “Schools are safe”, because children are at low risk of serious disease.
With current v high disease prevalence (maybe 1 in 20 or 30 in #London ,#1in50 elsewhere) MORE children will catch #coronavirus & MORE children will become very ill. 1/8🧵
In itself that’s not good. There are some v sick kids around the country right now & because they often present differently they may not be diagnosed so quickly. Often with gastrointestinal & joint symptoms & odd rashes. Parents & educators may not be aware of this. 2/8
Families, especially those in large multigenerational or BAME households are already at increased risk of severe #COVID19.
#Teachers & #earlyyears staff in JAN 21 STILL have virtually no #PPE. There will be many over 50s & others who are CV/CEV. This is not good. 3/8

IMO #teachers & #earlyyears staff settings are being SACRIFICED to give an illusion of “SAFETY”. The Gvmt know that if the majority of parents realise these settings are the places where they are likely to catch #coronavirus from, many will not want to their kids to go. 1/9
They’re keen to perpetuate the belief that there is “nothing to see here” in order to keep the work force working.
I’m not naive, I know the economic fallout from more things locking down won’t be good. But w/ so many children in school #Lockdown3 will go on for longer. 2/
Think #Chernobyl.
The men on the roof. Sacrificed to show the world that those in charge knew what they were doing. This is the same.
How many teachers have had #COVID19 ? How many have died? The full stats remain illusive. They are our family, friends & community members. 3/

#PrimeMinister, please watch this @BBCNewsnight clip.
Even as someone who’s worked as a dr throughout the #pandemic & seen #COVID19 up close, I found it deeply shocking & disturbing. 1/
@BorisJohnson @10DowningStreet
This isn’t a real #Lockdown #PrimeMinister !The roads are busy, schools have far more “key worker” kids than in Mar & #earlyyears settings are open “as normal”.
In my local #Medicentre & @PostOffice ,9/12 in, #masks ARE OPTIONAL! A place countless people go, MASKS R OPTIONAL! 2/
These are today’s numbers #PrimeMinister, EVERY case, admission or death is a person with family & friends.
Our #NHS 💙is on its knees, staff are sick & exhausted, taking to social media for help. We are doing our very best but things are really bad.
REALLY BAD! @BorisJohnson Image
