Plastic screens

Plastic screens fitted to desks will allow more children to attend as the 2metre distancing can be reduced with the screen protection. It will allow a much more authentic collaborative classroom experience while protecting both teachers and children from aspirated droplets from conversation and from the larger droplets from coughs or sneezes. Obviously all hygiene elements would be in place including appropriate and thorough cleaning of screens.

Why the contribution is important

Having more children in school will allow more parents to return to work, and support/initiate economic recovery. Screens will allow a much more authentic collaborative classroom experience for children while protecting both teachers and children from aspirated droplets from conversation and from the larger droplets from coughs or sneezes.

    I'm not sure if having plastic screens in schools is such a good idea. If one child has Covid19 and coughs and sneezes in the room, any amount of plastic screens will not stop the virus spreading. Everyone knows it's important to get children back to school when it is safe to do so, plastic screens will not make it safer for children.

    I do not see how plastic screens will work as we simply need less pupils in the room and corridors, and we do not need more communal hard surfaces. Better to focus on personal tablets and fewer pupils, perhaps testing of pupils in local school area.
