When you take into account the very limited numbers of pupils currently in most schools around 2-5%, what happens when it increases to 10-20-30%?

We asked ages ago if the government was modelling this and on what evidence

No response to the questions
In the @lbc news bulletin just now
'Government is urging councils to get more parents to send their pupils into school's
Without prior warning and proper communication schools wont have enough staff on rota to keep them safe.
Completely reckless, I hope @neucllrs refuse
Thought this crisis the government has refused to respond to all evidence based questions that have been put to them

Worth noting only around 2% of students have been in school for 6 weeks
The 65 are confirmed deaths, looking back through data I couldnt find a 3 or 5 year average but in service teacher deaths for 2019 were 130
Total teacher deaths during the Covid crisis covered in the ONS are 238. Make of that what you will.
