Members-only covid-19 briefing 27 May 2020


Join us at 7pm this Wednesday for an update and live question and answer session

Dear colleague, 

Ahead of the government's announcement this Thursday on whether the country's progress has passed its five tests, which need to be met before schools can admit more pupils, I will host our next online broadcast on leading the school response to the covid-19 pandemic.

For too long, the debate has focused on a “cliff edge” date rather than "how" we widen access to schools safely and practically. The government's language has become more realistic over the past few days, accepting that not every school will be able to do all that it asks and that the 1 June is a beginning rather than a “flick of a switch”.

Making good decisions about what can be achieved and what should be avoided in your context will be essential in the days and weeks ahead.

So, at this exclusive members-only briefing, Dr Matt Butler, a consultant at a covid-19 unit at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, will explain the medical implications in the context of schools. Matt has briefed members in local “coronacasts” run by national executive committee member Simon Kidwell to much acclaim.

NAHT director of representation and advice Paula Porter will also discuss risk assessments in schools.

And we will try to address a number of the questions that you have been asking us.

Register now (you'll need your membership number to do so) to join us for this private event.

Best wishes 

Paul Whiteman 

NAHT general secretary
