Law doesn't set a limit, but it's your fault if something happens to them.

That seems to be it.  This advice from the Children's Centre says:

It is not illegal to leave your children home alone and there is no legal minimum age. However, it is illegal to leave them at home unattended if it puts them at risk, which leads to some confusion.

[...]  It's important to remember that a baby or young child should never be left alone, not even for a few minutes, whether they're asleep or awake, stresses Westerman. "Children under the age of 12 are rarely mature enough to cope in an emergency and should not be left at home alone for a long period."

So with a 12-year old prosecution might well happen after any sort of incident.

Hang on... you weren't happy that your child was left in a classroom yesterday.  Why would being left at home alone be a significant improvement? 

I didn’t say I wasn’t happy about it as in there was any risk.  I said it showed how badly run the schools are.

Two very different things.  Do you see?

Many people are taking time off work or WFH because of this.

Balla on the other hand can’t my son is going to be back 1 extra day so still working from home two more days this week and two days next week.  Employers won’t be happy

I'm a bit confused by this.  According to Manx Radio they're saying: The school says it now has a contingency plan in place to ensure break times are safely supervised despite the ongoing industrial action.  But in that case why does it only apply the certain years and not all students?  I would have thought that breaks were either covered or not.  Are there still teacher shortages and this is being used to cover up the fact?

What would this lot do if suddenly the private sector all started going on strike? 

They seem to forget that even any sort of annual rise is relatively rare in the real world and certainly not a given.

Alternatively they could try and find a better job with better pay and benefits in the private sector.

If we do not support our teachers we may soon find out that offering pay rises to our teachers may be the only option to keep sufficient teaching staff ‘in post’.

However, the latest ONS report suggests average pay grew by 5.5%, with private sector pay growing 6% and public sector 2%.  The ONS also suggests that 32.7 million people are employed in the UK.  Therefore, according to the ONS, the pay of 32.7 million people went up by 5.5% on average.  Just facts.  

Is wage growth for 32.7 million workers relatively rare?

As many people have said they’re free to find alternative better paid employment if they want. But none of them will so then what will they do?

It is NOT to allow certain groups to hold us to ransom and create an ever bigger disparity between different sectors and expect the rest of us to pay for their pay rises.

I was actually giving some thought to your circumstances. 

You have said that you earn a three figured salary and that your daughter is academically gifted with the opportunity for very good grades.

You clearly are not a fan of the Islands High Schools so did you ever consider a private education for yoir daughter?  In your position this is something I would certainly have pursued in order to ensure the best education possible.

Well after the lockdowns they should be well experienced in dealing with this...

Remember the teachers are not on strike they are simply working to rule which suggests that the schools are under resourced if they are relying on teachers undertaking additional work.
