What do parents think about face masks in the classroom?
On 17th May, the requirement for secondary pupils to wear face coverings in school classrooms and communal areas is being lifted. The change is in line with the government's gradual easing of coronavirus lockdown restrictions. However, the decision has been met with criticism by some teaching unions, who remain concerned by the spread of coronavirus among teachers, pupils and their families more widely. They believe that face masks should remain in place for longer.
With many news stories about face masks dominating the education agenda, it's time for parents to say what they think, and use their voice in the national debate!
Who can take the survey?
We are asking three simple questions. It will take no more than a minute or so of your time to complete, and you do not have to leave any personal details. The survey is open to anyone with a parenting role who has a child currently attending school in England.
Once the poll closes, we will share the results with policy-makers and other education stakeholders to ensure that parent voice is heard on this important issue. Please share the survey link widely with family and friends!
