  2. Biggest concern is what happens when the swim out of our waters!
  3. Don't worry Brexit was worth it!!
  4. Yes but the entire problem is the lack of time to prepare. We all have done online learning over the past few months but changing from one to the other within 12 hours is just a joke. You have no experience of planning lessons creating resources or delivering lessson in either capacity. Nor do you have any experience in running a school, teaching children so your experience and knowledge is zero. Tell me Chaddy with your experience and knowledge how to I enable 62 children with no access to a laptop to do online learning when the govt has only given me 4 laptops out of the 62 promis
  5. Thankfully I made decision not to open my schools today, but I will still be up past 2am sorting everything for tomorrow then in at school at 7am.
  6. Yes some schools had an INSET day today, which 99% used to plan and prepare lessons for the coming week or 2. As the Govt told them schools were open this planning would have been done with the understanding of F to F teaching. Now to close schools tomorrow and expect schools to instantly go to online learning as well as F to F teaching is just ridiculous.as was shown last time. Online learning lessons are in a lot of cases completely different to F to F lessons. So teachers now have from 8pm till 8am tomorrow morning to completely replan lessons. Heads now have to work on the logistics of onl
  7. I know, perhaps I should have said why are 2 schools 700 yards apart different?!
  8. In that instance the email merely stated 'legal action '. This time I think I am being overly concerned as I do have the backing of the Local Authority on not opening tomorrow. The fact is it should not come to this. Decisions need to be made locally depending on circumstance. The govt don't care as long as they are profiting from this. That has been shown.
  9. Have spent a couple of days thinking what to write on here as I am utterly bewildered as to what this so called government is up to regarding schools. Firstly, before Christmas my school had several cases over 2 days, I wanted to close the school early so as to limit the contact and spread so close to Christmas. I was sternly told no by the DFE and threatened if we did. Subsequently 3 staff spent Christmas in hospital with Covid. 2 days later the DFE in the wisdom stated we could take Friday 18th as an INSET too little too late. Nothing but a waste of a day as with all schools quali
  10. The email I received on Friday completely and utterly sums up the disgrace this government is. In April this year they openly criticised schools for not being able to provide quality online learning for disadvantaged children. Articles in the media accusing schools of letting down children, Ministers, Journalists calling out schools for failing children. Then we get government rolling out a technology initiative aimed at getting all disadvantaged children access to a laptop so they can get the same advantages as other children. Great I thought ( having over 60 families with no access to a lapt
  11. I would have replied to this earlier, unfortunately the DFE decided to send me an email at 10pm last night to say that the laptops my school had applied for per the government's scheme to help disadvantaged children had been reduced from 61 to 13. No explanation given. By today this had happened to over 200 schools with all emails sent on Friday night before half term. I will post more about this later. Now, the motion was not a cheap shot intending to make the Government look bad. It was a reaction to an unprecedented situation made worse by the new lockdown measures and the need to ensu
  12. I do wonder whether the people who are arguing against the campaign actually understand what the campaign is about and know the history of FSM. Governments both Conservative, Labour and even Liberal have had FSMs in some form or other since 1844, when the government at the time expected schools to provide 1 meal a day for children free of charge. Over time this responsibility was moved into Local Authorities. The only contention has been in the 1990s when they removed the stipulation on the nutritional value of the meals resulting in unhealthy meals. It was the Conservatives who ensured i
