” You have written a powerful and persuasive template letter. Good work! ‘
David FJ Osborn BSc, CMIOSH, SpDipEM Chartered Safety Practitioner Occupational Safety and Health Consultant
Parents United UK have developed a template letter in consultation with an architecture industry professional.
The letter is designed for use by parents and carers when approaching their local political representatives regarding airborne transmission mitigation measures in their child’s school.
If you decide to use the letter, please also attach a link to our #FreshAirSchools Education Pack, and ensure you check that the letter content suits your situation, and amend it accordingly. We would advise sending it to your Local Councillor and MP, copying in the Head Teacher and governing body at your school.
If your school is a Foundation, Voluntary or Independent school you should write to the governing body. Academies and free schools should be contacted through the academy trust. Should you have any questions, please contact us.
We consider this letter to be open source – if you do not have a child at school but still wish to use some of the letter content for lobbying, please feel free to do so.
The reference list is also a useful resource. For immediate actions to mitigate airborne transmission in classrooms, see pages 17 and 18 of the Spanish Schools Guidance. Further information on airborne transmission and how to prevent it, visit our #FreshAirSchools Education Pack.
