Closed petition Give key worker children equal access to their schools and teachers.

Key worker children in some parts of Wales have been excluded from 'check in, catch up, prepare' sessions in their schools. They are not allowed any face-to-face contact with their teachers or friends if their parents also need childcare to enable them to do critical work. They are to be looked after in leisure centres with inadequate information about provision for their health, emotional well-being or education.

Schools should plan to include all learners this term and in September.

More details

Welsh Government guidance on the reopening of schools states that 'all learners who are able to, have the opportunity to attend their school or setting for face to face time over the remainder of the summer term'.
