How many adults in a school building
As a secondary school teacher in my 50s, i want to remind the Scottish Government that within large secondary schools you dont only have over 1000 pupils, you can also have around 200 adults in the building at the same time. We hear lots of mention that the rate of transmission between young people is low , but once you open schools again you will being all these "older" people together too. I want to know what protection you will provide 200 staff in a school, that will be different to that which was non-existant on Friday 20 March when we closed the building. What reassurances will we be given that we WILL have additional cleaning, that we WILL have hand sanitiser in EVERY classroom, that we WILL NOT be villified for asking for measures. Staff are your biggest resource in schools - look after them or you wont have resourced schools to open.
Why the contribution is important
This idea is important as cleaning of schools and lack of ppe, social distancing was disgusting. Staff were made to feel awful for asking for it or even raising concerns.
