Commenting on Welsh Government guidance about the wider opening of schools, Eithne Hughes, Director of the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) Cymru, said:

“We welcome the publication of this guidance as a step towards bringing children back into our classrooms in Wales, as safely as possible, from 29 June. We will have a careful look at the detail, to make sure that it answers all the questions that need to be answered.

“But we would emphasise that school leaders are already putting in place plans, and are determined to make this work on behalf of their pupils.

“It is vital that everybody supports this national mission, so that we can get on with the vital task of checking on children’s wellbeing and learning, and beginning to restore a sense of normality after this long period of disruption.”
