Whiteman: Government is right to acknowledge that bringing schools out of lockdown will need flexibility

Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, said: “At today’s Downing Street press conference, there was a hint of a more realistic tone on wider school reopening. That the Prime Minister acknowledges that flexibility will not just be possible but will be necessary is to be welcomed.

“We will take the Prime Minister at his word that schools will be allowed to react to their own local situations and will not be forced into opening or penalised if proceeding with appropriate caution. We note that the final decision  on bringing schools out of lockdown is still to be made on 28th May."
