Heard earlier on the radio a morning prime time presenter state that studies show that young children don't pass on the virus - so all the fuss being made by one or more of the teaching unions and their not supporting the current plan is apparently all just typical unions - being obstructive and teachers not doing their bit to get the economy moving again. Look at the sacrifices and risk, says he, that the medical and care professions are taking - and the teachers can't do their bit. I kid you not.
Let me ask you a question, if you had 3 holes in your lung from Cavitating Pneumonia but no shielding letter, haven't been out of the house for 7 weeks and when you get a cough or cold are pretty ill for a few weeks and have been told by the hospital we would do a lung biopsy to find out why you aren't healing but best not too at present and then get a call from your work saying you need to go back to work next Thursday along with 40 other adults in a small school with very little SD available would you take your own advice and be happy going a long for a little catch up or would you be worried you might catch it and die. Because that is the situation my wife is in and posts like yours really get on my nerves at times.
We are now waiting for the consultant to see if she can have a shielding letter but never mind some bloke on the radio says, sums it up really. Next you will be telling me you believe what the Daily Mail says or The Guardian.
I wish to add you have no idea how hard my wife has been working, she works from 8am in the morning till 9pm at night 5 days a week as well as half a day on the weekend. Her school is ranked 7th in the UK for performance, she speaks to all he pupils weekly, does video lessons for them each week as well as setting all normal work. They have daily conference meetings with all the staff as well senior mangement meetings, she is Maths leader and Senco Head (that's special needs) she has a blind pupil who needs braille work set as well as support for those that have welfare issues. She cannot work any harder as you say she cannot do her bit.
