421 schools in the UK now with confirmed cases. 10 in Scotland, 64 in NI, 28 in Wales, 226 in England.

This is according to ToryFibs who have compiled local newspaper reports, NHS reports and school websites, so is likely an under reporting.

Going well then, after 3 days.

I will if it is the actual decision that school have made. My wife was told about it just as she was leaving today, so don't want to be rash. Who would you report it to? Local paper or national? Bit wary about it as she's only been in the job for a few days and I imagine the suspicion would mainly be with the newer staff. But if this is the decision, it's fucking unforgivable and something has to be raised. We were due to see my parents this weekend and my mum is so cautious and anxious as she has respiratory issues and believes that if she got it then she would die. How can they purposely hide something like this?

Our procedure involves immediately contacting PHE, who give advice to management based on the specifics of the case (length of time in classes, distancing, etc.).

Do we know if their advice is the government's advice, or vice versa?

PHE isn't really distinct from the UK Government. It's part of the DHSC. (This is in contrast to PHW or the new PHS.)

(But I appreciate the wider point is that DHSC or its myriad contractors might be issuing other advice.)

I think that's what this school have done. He had symptoms on Monday and has been kept off since then, and they were told that if he'd been in until Tuesday then more drastic (although rather lame) action would have had to be taken. Seems fucking criminal that PHE are telling schools to hide information from classmates parents.

We let them run wild without supervision. Fair enough if you want to suggest a return to those days, but our PC-gone-mad culture probably wouldn't allow it.

Our ‘PC-gone-mad culture‘ wouldn’t get a chance to not allow it, as our obedient centrist gatekeepers of the status quo would no doubt find the proponents of any such ideas to be ‘hateful’ in some way, probably towards Jews, and would go about emphasising and attacking their character in increasingly disingenuous ways, lest their ideas gain any credence with the wider population.

A disgruntled headteacher in Glasgow has today "leaked", to union personnel a screenshot of an email from the big Education head honcho to Headteachers, none-too-subtly blaming teachers - their, and I quote, "ridiculous" insistence on having lunches in staff bases is to blame - for the spread of the virus.

Worth remembering that this very same person didn't want staff wearing masks a mere four weeks ago lest they inspire "fear and alarm within the young people".

Hearing that some parents who are trying to get tests for their kids with symptoms are being told there are no tests available for kids. Meanwhile the law says that as long as no-one in the household has tested positive, the symptomatic kid's asymptomatic siblings still have to go to school - which goes completely against the guidance to self-isolate for 14 days if living with someone with symptoms.

Maximum confusion, maximum idiocy.

I wonder how many of them are self-isolating and not able to get a test, therefore increasing the figure...?

Colleagues isolating already, students I haven't seen yet due to isolating, local secondaries and primaries sending home classes daily, and no tests. Fucking drivel. Six months and this is the shit we get. They won't remove any content from the exams, they're reluctant to even move the exams back by two or three weeks. But they expect us to finish courses with students, and prepare them for A Levels. And they expect the poor young people to study ludicrously dense courses whilst dodging this 'whack-a-mole' shit. Absolute wank.

Just yesterday was asked to comment on proposals to reduce the exam timetable by two weeks in June 2021. Six weeks of exams crammed into four. A logistical nightmare for schools who already struggle to accommodate exams, and even worse for candidates with learning difficulties or physical disabilities that require them to have extended exams, separate invigilation or specialist provision such as scribes or readers.

Probably a case of schools misinterpreting the rules, then. Turds did say the other day though that people without symptoms who are waiting for a test because they've been in contact with someone who tested positive should carry on going to work or school as normal in the meantime - which is entirely at odds with what the Test & Trace people are supposed to tell you to do when they contact you:

Johnson then added that a person should only otherwise request a Covid test if they have come into contact with someone who has themselves received a positive result, and should continue to work or attend school while they wait.

you will be told to begin self-isolation for 14 days from your last contact with the person who has tested positive. It’s really important to do this even if you don’t feel unwell because, if you have been infected, you could become infectious to others at any point up to 14 days.

500 kids in quarantine in South Africa in one school due to kids with symptoms coming into school and not declaring it. As parents in precarious employment can't take time off, I would imagine this is going to become a major problem worldwide unless something is introduced by the government to guarantee employment is maintained.

Over a million children weren't in school in England last Thursday. School part/full closures have quadrupled in a week.
