My stance and thread on June 1st #schoolsreopening just so the #dfe don't bully you with blind Science... I think the way #DominicCummnings was treated totally different to anyone else sums up the real lack of trust from the #government from Parents and teachers alike. 1/3
We wanted to start with Y6 on June 1st in bubbles BUT only 9/46 wanted the kids to return. Sadly this is not possible now as only 50% of the #PPE order has arrived. Im not opening my school (other than #Keyworkers / #vulnerables) until I can guarantee staff and children's safety
I am not willing to have the #DFE blood on my hands. The disaster in the #carehomes and with #edenred shows their decisions are pretty 'rubbish'. Thus following the RA, Y6 return June 15th ... Y1 June 29th (if things go well) and Rec July 13th. I have full Gov backing and....
To all schools giving unrealistic timetables for children to do at home-PLEASE STOP. By all means offer work for those who wish to do but to expect children to do it under duress is wrong.There is NO #DFE expectations for this and children IN SCHOOL are off timetable #coronavirus
2. Imagine being a parent of 4kids in different YG's whilst 'working from home?' -Parents are NOT teachers. Parents should be ensuring their children are happy and their wellbeing is protected. I would use @HeyPobble 'fun' homework OR use the brilliant example from @LeedsEastWay
3. @LeedsEastWay sent the most brilliant letter - offering work BUT not being punished for not doing it. We have to remember NOT all households have x4 different appliances to work on - and phones 'data' will soon run out.These are unique times. Take the pressure off the teachers
