Supply teachers and support staff across the United Kingdom need your support to secure government pay during the Coronavirus/ COVID-19 mandatory school closures.
A petition, which requires 10 000 signatures to garner a response from the UK government, was established and can be signed here.
Another petition, for zero hours contract workers has also been set up here.
The Supply Room has signed both.
“We need to protect the income of school agency staff to ensure they are supported during this mandatory school closure. If staff are not supported, they may leave the supply teaching profession which would result in an increase in the existing shortage in education professionals.”
Supply teachers and support staff are vital for our kids and their education. Sign the petition today – support supply teacher and support staff!
