How did it go for everyone ?
You finished early.
I'll know after 3.30
Are all parents going back to work after they have dropped their children?
Relativel few going back to our local primary this morning, as far as I could see.
Those with jobs will.
Agree with you there.
You can all have Thursday's clap.
Looks like around 40% of eligible children in our school are attending.
My husband dropped our Y6 off along with 4 other children from his class of 32.
It looks like the situation in England will be very similar to that in a number of European schools in which pupils have started to return. At least half of parents will initially be too cautious, and will wait a week or two to see what others do before sending their own kids back.
That's probably no bad thing if the number of children is initially kept very low.
Attendance pretty much as expected then.
There's no way I could do that.
hearing a little lad on the radio "I am a tiny bit scared …" brought tears to my eyes.
To all going back to work today, keep safe.
...and make bloody sure your union subscription is still up to date.
Staff only, it was fine.
Looks like we are going to be for all of next week to prepare for a formal opening on the 15th of June.
My friend is DH in a primary school where they have told the parents - your child either returns this week as agreed (on their appointed day) or they don't return at all until the guidelines change.
They have planned their classes & school organisation on the number of children parents said would be returning. An extra child - or two - or ten on Tuesday - Wednesday - Friday will wreck their planning & organisation.
For example, another 10 Y6s unexpectedly turn up tomorrow - where will they go? Who will teach them?
We haven't asked parents - we're preparing for every possible child to be in on their allotted day. This might mean staff being sent home but better than not enough staff in place.
We are both teachers. Our daughter isn't going back.
Good luck to those in work. I'm not in til next week. Could be different by then...
