That’s as maybe but as we all know “Do as I say and not as I do” doesn’t work. If your Secretary of State for Transport heads off to Spain for a holiday that gives a very clear message that going abroad is ok. The idiot got trapped by the quarantine later imposed but nevertheless senior Government ministers are holidaying abroad. Joe public will sense their own entitlement too. Personally, I didn’t risk it. A week in a remote cottage in U.K. only and right at the start of the holiday but I can see that many will be fulfilling pre-paid for holidays given that they are allowed to. This is my point - it’s a bit late and a bit rich telling teachers they must not. In fact, if education is such a priority (and it should be) the Govt should be saying this same message to all families of school age children - it is their moral duty to ensure their kids are able to start school on the 1st September as well as staff. Note this is not what they are saying. They are only pointing the finger at teachers and school staff.
