HOLY MOLY @educationgovuk - this must be a shock! WHAT IF OTHER crowded, poorly ventilated classrooms/dining halls etc turn a CO2 monitor RED within minutes too? Should unvaccinated children/staff, ESP any whoā€™re CV/CEV or w/ CV/CEV family, be in such HIGH RISK spaces??? 1/16
CO2 monitors appeared in all of our classrooms just before 9am this morning. Turned red as soon as pupils entered. Council workers returned at 5pm to remove all monitors & told us we only had them for 1 day. This is a joke @RenCouncil right? @EISUnion

Ah silly meā€¦.I forgot that CV/CEV children& adults are NO LONGER CV/CEV,one of the truly remarkable outcomes of #Covid19UK - CURED! Must be the #PrimeMinister ā€˜s healing hands or the kind words of Dr Harries telling shielding ppl they can ACT AS NORMAL? @BorisJohnson @PHE_uk 2/

At least we can all be reassured that we can only catch #COVID from STRANGERSā€¦.what a HUGE RELIEF! We can relax in the knowledge that we can safely ā€œcuddle upā€ with family & as many friends/work colleagues as we like without the slightest concern! Thanks 4 that @sajidjavidšŸ‘ 3/

But in all seriousness @nadhimzahawi ā—ļøWHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?ā—ļø As a new EDUCATION SECRETARY, health & wellbeing of pupils (families & staff) will be at the top of your list of priorities, yes? Put simplyā€¦. Sick/stressed kids canā€™t learn & sick teachers canā€™t teach! 4/

Itā€™s a crying shame no one advised @GavinWilliamson @NickGibbUK or @halfon4harlowMP on HOW to #MakeSchoolsSafeā€¦. I realise 18 months isnā€™t long enough to fund & provide effective ventilation to all UK schools so letā€™s seize the moment & ACT NOW! @CommonsEd @drcarolinej 7/

We are 2 weeks in to term, WHAT can you do TODAY? Looking at the @ONS stats released yesterday, Iā€™d say 10-19yr olds (particularly those in #NorthEast where I live & work) need URGENT protection. @ChildrensComm @Rachel_deSouza 8/

LAYERS of PROTECTION is the key @nadhimzahawi! #VentilationMatters massively - CO2 monitors only SPOT a problem, they do NOTHING to fix it. #HEPA filters should be in EVERY class/dining hall etc ALREADY, but as theyā€™re not, could you please see to it that they are ASAP šŸ™šŸ»? 9/

Quick,cheap & simple āž”ļø Reinstate the #MasksInClass mandate for secondary schools at the v least TODAY IMO children >6 can/should #WearAMask , as demonstrated widely by young children outside thešŸ‡¬šŸ‡§. *šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ kids DO NOT have superior lungs or immune systems!* #itsnotdifficultšŸ˜· 10/

STOP harassing/fining/threatening parents whoā€™ve thoroughly assessed the risk & decided to home school THEIR children DURING a pandemic. Checks notesā€¦..ā—ļø#CovidIsNotOver ā—ļø @Sandyboots2020 can update you if youā€™re unaware of the brutal treatment some patents have received. 11/

Look at all options to teach outside when possible, space out classrooms etc, & engage properly in enabling home learning for those that have no other choice! Unlock/fix ā€œlockedā€ windows/doors & encourage suitable clothing to keep kids/staff warm as the weather gets cooler. 12/

Drop the FARCE of not informing parents when a #COVID positive case is in their childā€™s class & encourage close contacts or those awaiting PCR results after a positive #LateralFlowTest NOT to attend school. #ItsNotRocketScience #DeltaVariant 13/

A new Education Secretary gives us some hope that thingsā€™ll change Mr Zahawi. We are international outliers in the handling of #COVID IN schools & the shocking #Covid19UK outcomes are in part due to #WilfulNegligence of encouraging #COVID to let rip RIGHT THROUGH schools. 14/

PLEASE please listen to desperate parents & young ppl whoā€™re understandably anxious. LOOK outside šŸ“󠁧󠁢󠁄󠁮󠁧ó æ&šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ at what works, eg schools in #NYC. Read what experts in public health & science are saying/advising & hear the reality of what those of us on the frontline are seeing. 15/
