Opening Schools During Coronavirus Survey

The Government, Council, and our local schools have started to bring certain years back to school. Every school is different in its layout, and we recognise that this brings many challenges and concerns given the ongoing existence of Covid-19 and social distancing requirements. We recognise the detriment to children caused by this terrible pandemic, missing out on educational time and valuable social interaction.

Balancing social distancing with the need to bring our children back to school is an incredibly difficult challenge. As parents of school aged children, your opinion is invaluable, across Richmond and Twickenham we believe that the views of parents must be known and understood.

Please share your views using this survey. We will collate the results of the survey and all responses will be kept anonymous, we will share these findings with the council and local schools, so that your voices are heard as we all look together at how we can begin to re-open schools to ensure your child gets the most from their education.
