Plans to allow school pupils to return are to be scrapped, or rather delayed. This comes after Health Secretary Matt Hancock, announced that it would not be recommended that secondary schools make a full return to schooling until September.
The government had plans to reintroduce primary school children back into their schooling regime before the end of term, this was done in some schools around England with primary pupils having partially returned to their regular schooling programmes.
The government had plans to reopen schools based on scientific advice that played a large role in influencing any further decisions made based on the return to regular educational environments.
It was planned that the government would ease primary school pupils back into their educational programmes for a period of about 4 weeks before the summer break, this plan however, is to be scrapped according to Health Secretary Matt Hancock.
The UK has dealt with the coronavirus outbreak through incorporating extreme lockdown measures just like other nations across the globe, this meant putting a pause on all activities, from educational to recreational considering the high risk there was in social engagement.
The government had plans for all pupils to make a return to regular schooling by the second half of the year, but has proven to be a difficult task considering the impossibility there would be in controlling or stopping the spread of the virus, around hundreds of students that are confined within one space.
Thus essentially influencing the plan to delay the initial plans for reopening all schools around the nation.
