Schools 'teetering on the edge' over Covid absence

An article in the TES (7/1/2022) states that a survey found that Schools were 'teetering on the edge' over Covid absence for this new term. A survey by the NAHT states that 'More than a third of heads have over 10 per cent of staff off work this week'.   The Education Secretary, Nadhim Zahawi, agreed that, 'Teacher absences will see a bumpy two weeks for schools as pupils return' and that he is, 'working on contingency plans' (Evening Standard).
