Uncertainty over when the schools go back

With the start of the school term just days away, there is still uncertainty over when students should return. Michael Gove reiterated on Monday 28 December that there would be a staggered start to the term, with pupils in Years 11 and 13 returning on 4 January and other secondary school pupils returning a week later. Primary schools return on 4 January.

Elsewhere is it is reported that Government scientists are urging the Prime Minister to keep schools closed. One of the main teaching unions is also saying they want schools to remain closed.

Dr Patrick Roach, General Secretary of the NASUWT, wrote to the Education Secretary Gavin Williamson on Monday 28 December asking that schools in the highest tiers be allowed to return to remote learning for all pupils, except those deemed to be vulnerable or the children of key workers.
