A Message From Cumbria County Council
Plans to reopen schools
We are writing to you following the announcement on Sunday 10 May by the Prime Minister explaining plans begin to reopen schools from 1 June.
The Prime Minister said that children from Nursery, reception, Year 1 and Year 6 could begin going back to school. This is in addition to children from vulnerable groups and children of essential workers. Secondary schools have also been asked to offer some face-to-face support to supplement the remote education of year 10 and year 12 students who are due to take key exams next year.
We have been discussing and planning this with Headteachers, Early Years Settings, Academy Trusts, Trade Unions and other Local Authorities across the region how this could be achieved safely.
