The Government announced that they wanted schools to take in more children from 1 June. These would be in the nursery, reception and Years 1 and 6, the children who are least likely to be able to practise social distancing and who need the kind of resources such as soft furniture and toys that make the spreading of coronavirus more likely. The number of coronavirus cases and deaths are both far higher than when it was decided the schools needed to close. There is no significant test, track and trace procedure in place, which all other countries starting a return to school have. This is putting our children, our teachers and school staff and our communities at risk.
The cabinet that made this decision without exception send their children to public schools that will not be opening until September. They have one rule for their children and another for ours. The decision about which children to send back to school is all about making their parents go back to work – if the younger children are not in school, their parents will have to be at home to look after them.
We believe that profit should not be put before people’s lives, and that schools should not take in more children before it is safe for them and our communities. We therefore call on Camden Council to join other local authorities in saying 1 June is too soon.
