Schools and Colleges must enable online learning for those students who live with family members who are clinically vulnerable.

Since “the vulnerable know how to protect themselves” these families should, therefore, be given the authority to transfer their children to online learning without fear of fines or prosecution, using resources that are already available for those isolating. Currently the only alternative is to home educate off-roll, potentially jeopardising their children's futures.

The most vulnerable should not have to choose between their own lives and the education of their children.
