2019-21 Session
That this House thanks teachers and other school staff for everything that they’re doing during the covid-19 outbreak; recognises the sacrifices that many teachers make by going into work and putting themselves on the frontline of the fight against coronavirus, especially those who live with people who are at risk from coronavirus; acknowledges that most teachers are already going into schools to teach and care for the children of key workers and vulnerable children; notes that teachers are going above and beyond to teach their pupils online in creative ways; further acknowledges the difficult position many supply teachers and other agency staff are in at the moment; and calls on the Government to provide those staff with financial support in line with that received by other agency and temporary workers in real terms.
