Both Boris Johnson and Sir Keir Starmer are insisting children go back to school while ignoring the health risks.

Parents have a right to be worried after both Party leaders have made compelling cases and guarantees about the safety of the nation’s children returning to school during this coronavirus outbreak but then we learn children and teachers in Scotland have tested positive in less than two weeks after schools reopening proving there is a clear health issue.

The public are told how dangerous this virus is, how contagious and life threatening but on the other hand we are given conflicting information that just doesn’t seem to old water when we review the facts.

If only for a minimum standard of safety the first thing we must demand is that the promised ‘track and trace system’ is up and running before children return to school.

Boris Johnson says it is ‘vitally important’ children return to class

He said “it is far more damaging for a child’s development and their health… to be away from school any longer”.

Mr Johnson’s words echoed those of the UK’s four chief medical officers.

They have all signed a joint statement alongside deputy chief medical officers to reassure parents schools could mitigate risks during the pandemic.

While Sir Keir Starmer made his position unequivocally clear saying “My message to the Prime Minister: I don’t just want all children back at school next month, I expect them back at school. No ifs, no buts, no equivocation.”
