Not unless you were redeployed away from classroom duties before vaccination was available (as some CEV staff were)

It will be interesting to see union advice if the government decide that we're fully opening on 8th March. Obviously we'll need to see what the data is saying nearer the time.

I’m worried too. Makes me feel sick. The next month will be hard.

I'm still in the classroom and have been throughout. Up to 25 people in my small room depending on the day of the week. Ks1 so very hands on.

That's great news, @InspectorAlleyn (about the jab; not do much about having 3/4 of your class in).

I'm worried too. I'm in full time at the moment with just under half my class and it feels hazardous. Rates in my area are sky high (over 1000 per 100k) yet people are blatantly flouting the rules. I can't see it changing any time soon and the idea of being back with a full class fills me with dread.

I miss them, and I would love to be teaching normally again instead of this current juggling act - but not at the expense of my health or my family's health. I'm

That 'I'm' was a weird accidental autocorrect!
