Millions of Students in England Go Back to School


I’m happy to have you back. Of course, there are challenges when trying to bring the students back in, and everyone in the community, whether that’s teachers, students or families, have got the concerns. We address those through excellent communication and trying to involve people as much as possible in the decision-making process. We obviously have guidelines in place that, you know, mean we have to work to quite strict guidelines and therefore, we’re limited as to what we can do. But in terms of making the students and the families feel comfortable with what we’re doing, we always try and listen to the feedback that we get through, through surveys and communication. I’m seeing a lot of thrilled children really grateful to be back in school, really thrilled to be getting back on with their learning, but we’re prepared for any of the, I think, any of the inconsistencies that might be thrown up in terms of their behavior. We’re prepared for that as well.
