NPFS Parental View of the Continuing Use of Masks in Schools – 21/01/2022

Following the NPFS Chair’s contribution to the Education, Children and Young People’s Committee on Wednesday 19th January 2022, NPFS are providing a further comment:
NPFS does not have a fixed policy position on the continued use of masks in schools. We ask that the guidance is proportionate and regularly reviewed. It is vital that our children and young people are safe and protected in school settings and that this is balanced with any wider harms. We support the guidance provided by our public health experts and continue to consult with parents and ensure their voices are heard at both local and national level.
