Priority vaccination of teachers and staff in schools – statement from Place2Be

Priority vaccination of teachers and staff in schools – statement from Place2Be

Place2Be is calling for all staff working in schools to be prioritised in the next phase of the Covid vaccination programme. This is fundamental to enable the safe re-opening of schools to all students.

As a mental health charity working within school communities across the UK, we understand the negative impact school closures and reduced access to face to face education is having on the mental, social and psychological wellbeing of children, their families and the wider school community.

The vaccination of teachers and those working ‘frontline’ in schools would provide reassurance, along with protecting their health and safety.  It would also hopefully result in reduced absence or illness, meaning less disruption for pupils and enabling schools to get back to full operational capacity sooner.  

Place2Be therefore supports any possible steps that can expedite the reopening of schools safely.
