This afternoon the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced that the Government’s five tests for easing the lockdown in England have been met, enabling all children to be welcomed back to early years settings and a phased return of some children to school, from Monday 1 June.
An excerpt from the Press Release:
“In line with the Prime Minister’s announcements earlier this week, a series of measures will be put in place in England from Monday 1 June in three core areas – schools, retail, and social contact.
Primary schools will welcome back children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 on 1 June, and nurseries and other early years settings will be reopened. On 15 June, secondary schools, sixth forms and colleges will begin to provide some face-to-face contact time for Year 10 and 12 and the equivalent groups in further education. This will help students prepare for exams next year, and we expect there to be around a quarter of these secondary students in at any point.”
