This is a virus that transmits well via aerosol, especially delta.
Children are very good at catching respiratory viruses and spreading, thus RSV outbreak etc.
Ask any teacher .
I'd be a bit skeptical of the 'children don't spread SARS-Cov2' conclusions.
This seems to be a UK thing, where opening schools was considered a national priority.
From a statistical population study, that probably needs more examination and follow up ?.
Testing of children may also be low as can be distressing, main emphasis, testing and protecting adults?
Milder symptoms, may need less virus spread, but may not be zero, especially in large groups.
The chances multiply greatly in the same household as you spend so much time breathing the same air.
