This email was sent to various secondary schools by a concerned reader. She has also sent it to us for publishing on The White Rose UK website. Please also view the document Say No to Faceless Children. This is an important approach. We cannot remain silent when children and youngsters are being used as guinea pigs and are suffering under mental and physical abuse.
Please can you confirm that you have reminded all school Head Teachers that they must carry out thorough risk assessments for the following to identify all possible ill-effects caused by the following?
1. face-mask wearing in school classrooms, corridors and play areas.
2. hand sanitising and general sanitisation of surfaces.
3. social distancing.
3. swab tests.
Given risk assessments must investigate all certain and possible risks, your risk assessments need to include the following:
1 The risk of a child or adult catching covid in a school setting.
2. The risk of a child or adult passing on covid in a school setting.
3. The risk of a child or adult suffering serious illness or death in a school setting.
4. The risk of physical health problems caused by mask wearing for six hours a day every day, such as breathing exhaled air, painful skin/ears, increased acne, bacteria growth inside masks, dental problems caused by mouth breathing.
5. The risk of mental health deterioration caused by masks, such as depression, anxiety, panic, hopelessness, etc.
6. The effects on communication.
1. Hand sanitiser often contains alcohol and chemicals and therefore there is a high probability it will cause skin rashes, sores and dry skin.
2. General sanitising of hands and surfaces kills beneficial bacteria needed to build a healthy immune system. The use of germ-killing agents also results in the survival of the fittest phenomenon, which will lead to ever more lethal bacteria thriving.
1. The two-meter rule throughout the school day will greatly limit the pupils’ socialising, risking mental health problems.
2. The two-meter rule prevents the exchange of germs, an essential action in building strong immune systems.
1. Swab tests risk mental health problems as they are humiliating, embarrassing and demonising.
2. Swab tests can be painful.
3. Swab tests leave plastic fibres deep inside the nasal cavity.
4. Swab tests have been found to be contaminated with covid in many countries around the world.
The risks posed to children by treating them as bio-hazards from the start of the school day to the end also need to be assessed and weighed up against the risks posed by the virus. Given the government has repeatedly stated that the risk in schools is tiny, given that not one healthy child has died from covid anywhere in the UK and given that teachers are now known to have the same risk of catching covid as farmers, the covid risks are clearly minor in comparison to the risks posed by the measures used to protect against it.
The use of face masks is a recommendation and not a legal requirement. The use of risk assessments is a legal requirement, and they must take into account all risks posed by medical interventions. Risk assessment findings must then be acted upon to ensure risks are not ignored and also risk-aversion measures are not excessive, and therefore more detrimental than the risks themselves.
I am contacting you on behalf of a parent group. Please respond ASAP with details of all risk assessments carried out. Should no appropriate risk assessments be available, the law states no medical interventions can be carried out.
The government recommendations are not risk assessments. Risk assessments need to be carried out by the school and managed by the Head Teacher. Risk assessments must be tailored to individual schools, settings, pupils, etc. and must consider the safety and well-being of both staff and pupils.
This is from the government website:
“Roles and responsibilities. All employers are required by law to protect their employees, and others, from harm. Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the minimum employers must do is: Identify what could cause injury or illness in the organisation (hazards). Decide how likely it is that someone could be harmed and how seriously (the risk). Take action to eliminate the hazard, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk.”
If the school has not identified the very likely harm to mental and physical health of face masks, sanitisers, swab tests and social distancing, which are all new and unusual medical interventions that go against nature, then the school has failed to adhere to the law. (Taken from https://neu.org.uk/advice/risk-assessment)
Head teachers’ professional duties include responsibility for managing health and safety in schools and the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD) requires head teachers to promote the safety and wellbeing of pupils and staff (paragraph 46.6).
If a Head Teacher of a school has failed to adhere to these rules then this needs to be immediately rectified.
Please advise ASAP that these risk assessments have been carried out, and please ensure the Method Statements are made public and all staff, parents and pupils informed.
