Following the announcement that teachers are going to be tested for Covid-19 from next week, Laura Doel, director for NAHT Cymru, said: “Our members' safety has been at the top of our agenda from the beginning. Our members have stepped up to serve during a time of national crisis and they deserve to be protected.
“We believe testing teachers will offer some relief to those working tirelessly to support the communities we live in and further stem the spread of the virus.
“This announcement does not change our position on the reopening of schools as we firmly believe schools can only begin to reopen when the medical and scientific evidence says it is safe to do so.”
