NAHT Cymru comments on Welsh Government guidance returning to school in September

Laura Doel, director of school leaders’ union NAHT Cymru, said: “We welcome the fact that schools now have a degree of clarity about what the September return will look like. Schools can now begin to put plans in place to welcome all pupils back next term. However, we should not underestimate the scale of the logistical challenges this guidance will pose school leaders in particular. We should make no mistake, this is not a return to ‘business as usual’ and there is a great deal of work that now needs to be done.

“There are a number of specific areas where we still need clarity from Welsh government. These include their recommendations round the use of face coverings, and how they expect wrap around care to operate.

“It is essential that Welsh government continue to engage with us on these and other matters too so that schools and parents alike have full confidence in the government’s plan for a full return in September.

“Education Minister Kirsty Williams and Co-chair of TAC Fliss Bennee are joining our NAHT Cymru webinar tomorrow evening where school leaders will have the opportunity to put their questions to them directly and we welcome the willingness and transparency of Welsh Government to engage with the profession.”
