Need for ‘clear and comprehensive’ return to school plan – Finucane

Sinn Féin MP John Finucane has reiterated calls for the Education Minister to bring forward a clear and comprehensive plan for a safe return to school.

The North Belfast MP said:

“It’s now the first week of August and the clock is ticking towards a return to school. 

“Parents are becoming increasingly worried having received conflicting advice about how a return to school will look and what procedures will be in place.  

“All of this reiterates the need for a clear and comprehensive plan on exactly what will happen when schools reopen. 

“Despite having months to prepare, Education Minister Peter Weir appears void of ideas or a plan for a safe return to school. 

“The Education Minister must bring forward proposals as a matter of urgency. Parents and schools need clear guidance urgently on what a return to school will look like.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
