It is the Governments plan that all pupils, in all year groups will return to school full-time from the beginning of the autumn term. The Government’s current guidance is set out in 5 key areas. These are:
- Actions for school leaders to minimise the risk of transmission in their school
- School Operations
- Curriculum, behaviour, and pastoral support
- Assessment and accountability
- Contingency planning to provide continuity of education in the case of a local outbreak
Most schools will have either continued to support Key workers and vulnerable children during the lock down, and others will have reopened their doors from the 1st June onwards. With circumstances changing and the NHS track and trace system up and running, the government are clear about the measures that are needed to create safer environments within schools.
