Commenting as the government announce a pause on daily contact testing for Coronavirus in schools, Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, said:
“School leaders have previously expressed considerable concern regarding government’s plans to use negative lateral flow test results as an alternative to isolation. It was clear to all but government that the reliability of these tests is simply not good enough to warrant such action.
“It is good news that the government has finally recognised the advice of health experts and come to the correct conclusion on this matter. But once again, it is professionals on the front-line who are left unsure which way to face following another government U-turn, and who are deeply frustrated at the regularity of chaotic announcements emanating from the centre.”
