Commenting on the report that headteachers have written to the Welsh Government requesting further detail on how schools are expected to re-open in September, the Shadow Minister for Education, Suzy Davies MS, said:
“Two weeks to go before the summer break and families, schools and councils still don't know where they stand when it comes to the autumn term.
“I'll be looking for a full return to school, subject to the need to quickly respond to localised outbreaks. Schools and councils need to know now how those quick responses should look.
“Given plans have already been announced in England and Scotland, this is simply unfair that the Welsh Government is leaving our pupils and teachers in the dark by not providing them with any clarity of what the autumn term will look like.
“As a matter of urgency, the Welsh Government needs to answer legitimate concerns by providing the necessary details quickly to allay concerns.”
