Information for parents and carers of children regarding education:
The Government are keen to get children back into education as soon as it is safe to do so. They are anticipating for Education Providers to re-open the week commencing 1 June, providing that the 5 key tests justify the changes at the time. Year 10 and Year 12 pupils will be amongst the cohort that return, although it is not expected that these pupils return on a full-time basis at this stage.
