Children's Commissioner Anne Longfield has called on the Government to set up summer classes in July and August to help children catch up on work they missed during lockdown. With some primary school pupils returning to school in England today, many young people face up to six months off school depending on when they are able to return. Writing in The Daily Telegraph, she said summer schools could help the "most deprived" and "provide activities of all kinds, meals and potentially some learning too". On social media, she said: "Good luck to all the teachers and children with returning classes in primary schools this week. There will be a few nerves but the work & planning to make schools a safe, welcoming and nurturing place has been outstanding. Thank you." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-england-52842447 I really hope she does not expect teachers to run these or to be involved in any way! All the teachers I know have either been teaching the children deemed vulnerable or of Key Workers or have been distantly educating the children staying at home for the last ten weeks.
