To ask the Secretary of State for Education, whether it is his policy that all children will return to school at the start of the 2020-21 academic year.
25 June 2020
We want to get all children and young people back into education as soon as the scientific advice allows because it is the best place for them to learn, and because we know how important it is for their mental wellbeing to have social interactions with their peers, carers and teachers.
We are working to bring all children and young people back into education in September and engaging with stakeholders to achieve this.
These are rapidly developing circumstances; we continue to keep the situation under review and will keep Parliament updated accordingly.
