Cambridgeshire headteachers have been 'working tirelessly to consider different models of phased re-opening long before the government made any announcements'
Council leaders in Cambridgeshire are working with schools to prepare for pupils to return ‘when it is safe to do so’.
Education leaders at Cambridgeshire County Council are working with schools, academy trusts and the diocese to look at bespoke plans for the safe return of pupils – based on Government scientific advice which is expected to be released next Thursday (28).
While the final decision on when and how to open individual schools rests with their head teachers and the governing bodies who run them, the Government has encouraged schools to consider beginning to re-open education provision from June 1. This will mean additional primary provision for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils and secondary schools working with pupils from Year 10 and Year 12 to ensure they are supported for important exams next year.
