    How's your school organising these things?

    Verifying key workers?

    Ensuring children of non-keyworkers don't 'slip into' school.

    Dealing with parents demanding their child is in school.

    Reducing potential spread (eg extra cleaning /deep clean /spreading pupils out?)

    Staff rotas.

    Merging small classes.

    Might be useful to share ideas - in a non judgemental way please. Sure everyone's doing their best.

    Be safe.

    can't really do that, if children need to be 2 m apart

    How on earth is it possible to have children in a room and kept 2m apart?

    They are children.

    I have seen plans by some LAs to bus children around to pack them into classrooms. Illegal surely on H&S grounds.

    If there was PPE available I’d go in. But if I had children in school I wouldn’t send them in. It’s too dangerous for them and the risk of them being asymptomatic virus shedders is too much. Imagine they infect the whole family and parents are seriously ill. Parents couldn’t work in their ‘key worker’ roles!

    Can't possibly do those merging for now. :rolleyes:

    If there are 6 pupils in one class, 4 in another?

    If numbers were this low in a year group it might be best to merge and save 1 teacher the risk of travelling in on public transport.

    I just heard a HT on BBC News say that he is combining y7 and y8 classes for lessons and fun activities.

    He is guaranteeing the spread o the virus. Does he expect the teacher to take part in these fun activities?

    We have 10 children across the whole school (primary). There are more staff than children. TA now been sent home and a rota being developed. Kids seem totally unable to stay away from each other! Staff sent out to deliver home learning packs this morning. No PPE.

    Are you not worried about this?
