We would like to hear from teachers following the change to Covid restrictions in schools in England

Education unions have called on the government to extend mask-wearing beyond school communal areas and into secondary school classrooms.

Following the emergence of the Omicron variant, the Department for Education now recommends the use of face coverings in schools in England for adults and children in Year 7 and above in shared spaces.

We would like to hear from teachers about their views on the changes to England’s rules. Do you think mask rules should be extended into classrooms? What other changes would you like to see? When restrictions were in place before, what do you feel worked and what didn’t?
