Asking parents to come in to collect learning packs!?

    My school sent parents emails containing loads of education websites and logins for sites we use etc instead of learning packs, however, my friend's school is now doing weekly learning packs and asking parents to come into school to collect them. Is it just me or is this madness? It's a 2 form entry so we're not talking just a few adults. Surely putting adults/office staff/teaching staff at extra risk? Is it going against some sort of rule?

    Totally against the rules of common sense for a start.

    We had a couple of kids being kept off school in the last week by mum " because of government advice."
    Guess what ? Last day they brought their wheezy coughs into school to say " goodbye" to their mates.

    Genius parents! My friend had a parent email their emergency contact to ask can they come in to change a book and to check that the class cuddly toy had been taken home by a member of staff :)

    I thought you were only supposed to be out for medical apts, working if you can't wfh, infrequent essential shopping, short local exercise or to help a vulnerable relative? Aren't they fining people for being out for other reasons?

    We are one form entry, prep school with only 95 children. Luckily we have a lobby that completely separates adults from children, staff & teachers. The packs are made up and left in lobby, which is left open from 9am until 5pm.

    My school has tried, as best it can, to limit any risk but obviously, we are in with keyworkers children so risk already high :(

    Hello officer, I'm just popping to school to pick up some work. I'm not convinced.

    I am sure there is a way of reporting actions like this
