We know the educational impact of COVID-19 will be significant. We are committed to ensuring that as many pupils as possible return to formal schooling in the Autumn in the safest possible way.

Statement from the Confederation of School Trusts on opening schools more widely

Since the beginning of the global pandemic, schools have responded with quiet determination.

Schools have not been closed. They have remained open for the children who have needed our support and care, including the children of key workers. Teachers and leaders have in many cases worked harder than any point in their professional lives as they have sought to support home learning and to ensure that those families who needed it, had food. Parents too have been magnificent in attempting to support their children’s learning while in many cases, also trying to continue to work.
