More than 95 per cent of primary schools open but less than half of Cambridgeshire pupils go back to class
Less than half of primary school students called back under the government’s reopening plans have returned to the classroom in Cambridgeshire, the county council has said.
Under the government’s plan for a phased reopening of schools, primary schools were reopened on June 1 for pupils in reception, year one and six.
Figures from Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council, which the councils said were provided by the Department for Education (DfE), show that as of June 8 more than 95 per cent of Cambridgeshire’s primary schools were open to those specified year groups.
