    During the schools lockdown our department produced 3000 face shields for over 100 care providers in our local area.
    The school received no funding from this through the local authority or the government. Many schools up and down the country did the same and as a result now have to replace parts, in our case filters costing over £400. I have put together a petition and it is now live for the public to sign. We need 10,000 signatures just to get the petition responded to.

    Please sign the petition shown in the link and pass on to as many people as possible please. Hopefully we can get schools compensated for the work they have done to help with the covid crisis.

    The schools near where I work who did this all asked for donations. So perhaps not compensated fully, but certainly not hugely out of pocket.
    Primary schools, nurseries and care homes all benefited and gratefully donated a decent amount.
