Special schools

 

Sir, – It is great to see our special schools and special classes reopening. However, many of the students attending these settings, including my own child, cannot practise the public health guidance around mask wearing, cough covering and social distancing. Therefore, is it not now time that we prioritise these students and the staff working with them for vaccinations? I’m a little surprised the step hasn’t already been taken. – Yours, etc,
