BreakingNews: Will Barnet Council close schools early ?
I am writing to you in your statutory role to ask if you are aware of the Greenwich Council decision which has appeared online this afternoon?
I attach a copy of the letter sent out to all Greenwich schools by the Leader of Greenwich Council.
Please note he states:
“I have asked all Schools in Greenwich to close their premises from Monday evening and move to online learning for the duration of term, with the exception of key worker children and those with specific needs (exactly the same as the first lockdown).”
Throughout the pandemic we have been advised that Barnet Council are working in line with London Councils. I am assuming this decision has been subject to some discussions with London Councils?
Given the increased likelihood of London going into Tier 3 and perhaps the 23 – 28 December initiative being limited for people living in London is Barnet Council going to try to mitigate the spread by following their lead?
I will be writing to over a thousand plus UNISON members working in Barnet Schools most of which are frightened at the increasing likelihood that there will be more infections in the last week of school and the negative impact it will have on their families.
