From Monday 29 March:
Cllr David Finch said: “While today’s announcement is welcome news and certainly a step in the right direction, I must ask everyone to please remain cautious. We are not out of the woods yet, and we must not undo all the sacrifices everyone has made over the past year.
“Our case rates are still around 100 cases per 100,000 people, and we still have some work to do at getting these figures down.
“I am sure many parents and carers are breathing a sigh of relief today with the announcement that all children will now be able to attend school, however there will be many who are anxious or worried about sending their children.
“I would like to reassure parents and carers that all of our schools will continue to work exceptionally hard to create Covid-secure environments by following the Public Health England and Department for Education advice and guidance, in preparation for the full return in two weeks time.
“We would ask parents and carers to also play their part. Please adhere to your school’s policies, including isolating at home should your child have any symptoms and of course please adhere to social distancing guidelines while on the school run.
“We understand how hard this past year has been for everyone, however today’s announcement shows us that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I am hopeful that by following the Government’s roadmap, and by working together to adhere to the guidelines, we begin to see a return to a more normal way of life in the very near future.”
