Schools will be opened in September, “We’re working very closely with headteachers and the teaching unions to make sure that all the steps necessary are put in place over the summer so that the children can go back in September and it is an absolute priority for the government”, Housing Secretary Mr Robert Jenrick has said.
Teaching unions have called for clarity amid a rise in the number of coronavirus cases and local lockdowns have been placed in Kirklees.
Unions have raised questions over the plans to reopen schools after England’s chief medical officer Prof Chris Whitty warned the country is “near the limit” for opening up society.
There has been questions raised for transparency by Mr Patrick Roach, general Secretary of the NASUWT teachers along with Prof Graham Medley, chairman of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), who say that pubs and other activities need to close for schools to open safely.
As a uniform stockist we believe safety for children, parents and all staff from schools need to be protected, so all safety measures should be put in place. The virus is proving to be deadly and we have to work closely with local government and central government to make sure we give ourselves the best chance to keep ourselves safe and all those around us safe.
Kirklees has been in lock down again due to rising cases, so we all need to take as much care we possibly can.
