NAHT Cymru comments on school Covid testing and government threats in Wales

Laura Doel, director of school leaders' union NAHT Cymru said: “We deplore the use of legal threats from Welsh Government. Schools which are using their local knowledge and expertise to provide the highest quality education and care for their pupils, should not be threatened by legal action for using sensible flexibilities to manage their way through to the end of term.

“The government’s lack of understanding of the reality on the ground has been staggering. Publicly ministers express their thanks to school leaders, whilst behind the scenes they are sending intimidating and unnecessary legal letters. We object to these double-standards in the strongest terms.

“The implications for schools to mass test on a national scale is huge.  For the health minister to say it can be rolled out at the start of next term when the teachers have to carry out the tests and they haven’t been trained is laughable.

“Ministers have an awful lot of work to do to repair the damage that has been done to their relationship with the teaching profession.”
