UK coronavirus live: not all primary school children will go back before summer

I do welcome this announcement that is hopefully going to be made today.

It demonstrates that the Secretary of State and the Department for Education are listening to the profession – I believe they have listened to the profession and this is a really positive step forward.

I think they are saying if you can extend your provision to other year groups then you can go ahead, but you still have to do it within the measures of control that are in place.

And from my own trust’s point of view, it is all about simple practicalities, it is not about whether you want children in schools or not.

We simply don’t have enough physical space for any more year groups and we don’t have any more human resources for any more year groups.
