Education minister must give clarity over any plans to extend school closures – Sheehan

Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has said the Education Minister must provide clarity over any plans to extend the closure of schools as a result of COVID-19. 

Pat Sheehan said: 

“Teachers, school staff and parents need clarity over any plans to extend the schools closures which have been brought about as a result of COVID-19. 

“The Education Minister must urgently provide clarity on the issue to parents and young people and give clear guidance to principals, school staff and teaching unions. 

“We also need to see what plans the minister is putting in place for the safe reopening of schools when the time time is right. 

“I will be raising this with Peter Weir to ensure that he liaises with all those involved in education in advance to give them time to effectively plan.”
