P-05-1147 Require all schools to provide daily live / recorded teaching to all pupils not returning to school



This petition was submitted by Catherine Evans, having collected a total of 308 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

There are still schools claiming there are insurmountable barriers to providing lessons, five weeks into the term and for seven weeks of this academic year. This is no longer acceptable. Our children must all be given equal access to education. Solutions to those barriers must be found and all pupils must be taught.

This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 16/07/2021.

The Committee considered the correspondence received and noted that the then Minister clearly stated that decisions regarding live or recorded lessons are a matter for the school and local authority. Consequently, there was little further action it could undertake. It agreed to close the petition and thank the petitioner for raising the issue and to suggest they contact their school or local authority directly if they wished to take the matter forward.
