Many parents are sharing their letters that they’ve prepared and sent to their child’s school.

In an effort to help anyone struggling we’re sharing ones sent to us for other parents to use bits they feel may be relevant to their circumstances.

First one here is @Tall_Paul_05 ImageImageImage
Everyone’s circumstances are different.
One of our founders @HoppySaul has teenage boys who want to still attend school. ImageImageImage
This one is from a parent in San Diego @IanRicksecker - many thanks for sharing #internationalsolidarity 🐝🐝 Image
Some parents are asking for minimal support to remote educate, some are asking for the use of masks, some are offering to donate HEPA filters, some are asking for a six week breathing space to see how infection rates alter with a return to school.

One size does not fit all

Increasingly it seems @educationgovuk , some paediatric professionals, some school leaders, most media journalists and even some parents spout the line that it’s okay for children to be infected because…
1. “Children mostly have a mild infection”


2. “Very few children die”


3. “Children who don’t return to pre-infection health swiftly have underlying conditions “
1. Hospital admissions with numbers of children admitted for covid are increasing. See @TigressEllie @jneill data
Look at the #Theysurvivedcovid hashtag

2. Have you seen what is happening in other countries? Are you dismissing and minimising the loss of children?

“Today children, we’re going to talk about masks…”

No, just joking today we are going to discuss the use of a scientifically recognised mitigation against an airborne virus, like adults!
Let’s establish the important facts here;
1. Covid is airborne
2. Not everyone who has covid is aware that they have covid
3. People who are infected (including children) can transmit their infection to other people via the air they breathe
With infection rates in the UK being higher than they were in September 2020, being indoors in any setting with members of other households holds an increased risk of exposure to infection.

You may remember that on the 6th of August we wrote to a number of politicians who have responsibilities that include education.
Here’s our original letter;
Well today, a full month later, we have had ONE reply.

This one is from the DfE.

We’ll post each page of the response in the comments below, let us know what YOU think about this response.

Page 1 - mentions disruption but not unnecessary infections due to lack of mitigations
Page 2 - attendance mandatory, doesn’t mention the HT discretion that @NickGibbUK confirmed to @publiclawcentre last year
