NASUWT calls for closure of schools

Unions says not enough being done to protect teachers

One of the unions representing Manx teachers is calling for the Island's schools to close amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The NASUWT says there's a lack of clear information regarding steps to protect teachers from the illness.

The union warns schools are struggling with diminishing staff levels.

It adds that the UK and Isle of Man are going against the approach of the majority of other countries, which have shut schools.
