The minister of schools shall develop a “contingency plan” for children that can’t come back in September


The government is considering “contingency plans” if all the children in English may not return to the classroom in September, admitted the minister for Schools today.Nick Gibb has refused to say that the children would come back certainly in full in September – saying only that it was “the intention” of the government.

This suggests the possibility of a new retreat possible dates of opening of the schools after the unions have warned that the September date was impossible.

Boris Johnson has repeatedly said that he wanted all the children in England go back to school in September.

But teachers ‘unions say that” the math don’t work “according to the rules of distancing present – which require schools to divide students into 15 “bubbles” strong, doubling the number of classes.

This raises the prospect of a further setback to the date of the opening of the school (photo stock)

The national Union of education has called on the government to use the public buildings for classroom spaces and additional use of ” blended learning “, a mix between the home and the classroom.

Mr. Gibb was challenged today to know if the September date could become another half-turn.

He told Sky News: “well, our clear intention is that schools will re-open to all students in September.

“We are of course led by the science and medical advice.

He added: “We take each measurement in a prudent manner, we are working with the school sector, we take advice.

“Of course, we are working on other contingency plans,” said Nick Gibb.

“And we give schools plenty of notice and time to plan the reopening in September.

“Of course, we are working on other contingency plans, but the clear intention is that all children will return to school in September. ”

One-third of the primary schools of England are still not fully open to years R, 1 and 6 despite the fact that they are invited to do so since the 1st of June.

And the plans for the reopening of primary schools 2, 3, 4 and 5 by July were abandoned when government officials recognized that there was not enough space.

The growing crisis in education in England has seen millions of children unable to attend classes since the lockout unprecedented Covid-19 ordered in march.

The parents fought for the young from school to home in the middle of fears that some fall behind on their peers.

A report from the Institute of Education of University College London has revealed that two million children have less than an hour per day of homework during the lockout.

Today, the government has announced a catch-up program of 1 billion pounds to help prevent children from being left behind.

Some 650 million pounds sterling will be shared between the elementary and secondary public schools during the next school year.

And a national programme of mentoring for 350 million pounds sterling will improve access to school fees for the poorest children.

But the money does nothing for the kindergarten or the schools.

And the amount of support that will be provided during the summer holidays is not clear, because it is to the heads, spend the money.

Mr. Gibb has admitted that the funding made available to the schools will not begin to be distributed starting in September.

Speaking at the breakfast of the BBC, he said: “The money will start to be paid during the school year beginning in September.

“The schools will know that this happens and they will be able to establish a budget on this basis if they want to do things before September.

“But the money will start to be distributed to the schools, we will have more to say on this subject shortly, from the next academic year, September. ”

The education campaign of the government comes after the launch yesterday by the Mirror, our campaign “Give our children to school”.

The experts believe that the relaxation of the rule of the social distance of two meters is the key to the re-opening comprehensive schools.

Speaking at the press conference in Downing Street yesterday evening, the Health secretary, Matt Hancock, said: “We are working on what is needed to open all schools in September, and there was a review of the current rule of two meters.

“But the rule of the two meters is in itself a measure of social distancing.

“The remove has an impact in terms of transmission of the disease, therefore, we must ensure in this review we have the space, and that the virus is sufficiently mastered to be able to make the change and replace the rule of two meters. if this is the conclusion of the review with something which then facilitates the achievement of things such as the grouping of people in the schools. “
