Is It Back to School Time

Posted on 2nd June, 2020


Today, the government has updated its guidance for parents and carers for "Opening schools and educational settings" and "


"From the week commencing 1 June, [the government] are asking:

  • nurseries and other early year providers, including childminders, to begin welcoming back all children
  • primary schools and alternative provision to welcome back children in nursery (where they have them), reception, year 1 and year 6
  • all schools and childcare providers to continue to offer places to the priority groups – vulnerable children and children of critical workers – they have been supporting since the end of March
  • special schools, special post-16 institutions and hospital schools to work towards a phased return of more children and young people without a focus on specific year groups and informed by risk assessments

From the 15 June, [the government] are asking:

  • secondary schools, sixth form, and further education colleges to begin offering some face-to-face support to year 10 and 12 pupils to supplement their remote education, which should remain their predominant mode of education during this term
  • alternative provision to begin some face-to-face support with year 10 and 11 pupils (as they have no year 12)

This approach aims to limit numbers within schools and further education settings while ensuring that the children and young people who can benefit from attending most are able to do so."
