As a country we see many water-related fatalities every year. We see many more call outs to water related incidents. Throughout lockdown year our coastguards were tasked to almost double the call outs than in the previous year. Our children NEED to learn about Cold water shock & rip currents.

The government should allow BTEC students to achieve teacher predicted grades rather than being forced into a system that is unethically downgrading thousands of students grades.

Please don’t send students back until we know we have had the priority groups vaccinated such as the elderly, the extremely clinically vulnerable, and those with underlying health conditions.

Cancel all standardise testing for year 11 and year 12 students in 2021. By replacing tests with smaller amounts of course work and teacher assessment, students would have a fair chance at achieving their target grades and it would relieve stress for teachers and students.

Schools can be a breeding ground for the spread of coronavirus. Children are mingling at schools and returning to families who are potentially vulnerable, keeping rates high.

It's only been since schools opened that infection rates have been high in Kent, and keeping them open may keep it high.

Legislate to allow parents to have the option to remove their children from school if there is a pandemic e.g. Coronavirus or similar without negative action by schools or local authorities. They shouldn’t lose the child’s place in the school or face any kind of prosecution.

A significant number of students will sit their final 2021 examinations. The outcome of which undoubtedly will be their passport, for many of their future life chances and successes. In order for this to be done fairly, it is imperative that the amount of content they are tested on is reduced.

We want the Education Secretary and the Government to step in and review the exam board’s decision on how GCSE and A-Level grades will be calculated and awarded due to the current coronavirus crisis. We want a better solution than just using our previous data to be the basis of our grade.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 3 December 2021 to Question 80898 on Coronavirus: Vaccination, what steps he is taking to help ensure a higher uptake of vaccinations among the 12 to 15 age group.

As of 11 December, over 1,285,987 12 to 15 year olds in England have now received their first dose. Since the school-based vaccination offer commenced in the autumn, 95% of all schools have either been visited or have a visit planned. NHS England and NHS Improvement are also planning a programme to reach those who were absent on the day of the vaccination visit; those who tested positive for COVID-19 within a 28-day period; and those who now wish to receive the vaccine. This will be at the end of the substantive school offer period.

Parents are also able to book a appointment via the National Booking Service or 119 which offers flexibility and an increasing number of vaccinations sites for 12 to 15 year olds. Parents and guardians will be advised to book an appointment to attend vaccine sites with their children and consent will be sought during the appointment.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will re-introduce free covid-19 lateral flow test kits for employers.

Vulnerable settings continue to be offered regular asymptomatic testing for staff and for service users, particularly those who are at high risk of severe illness if they were infected with COVID-19. This includes health and social care settings and prisons. Workplace testing has also continued for those who work in operational roles at the United Kingdom border and in education. We have no plans to resume provision of free tests to other types of workplaces. However, employees can continue to access free tests through Pharmacy Collect, online ordering or 119.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what recent assessment his Department has made of the adequacy of the number of General Practitioners in (a) West Sussex and (b) Bognor Regis and Littlehampton; and if he will make a statement.

There is no national recommendation for the number of general practitioners required in the general practice workforce therefore no specific assessment has been made. Each general practice is required to provide services to meet the reasonable needs of their registered population, including the range of health professionals available.
