97% of schools plan to welcome back all pupils full-time


Almost 100% of schools plan to welcome back all pupils full-time at the start of the autumn term, figures suggest. In the 3% of cases where schools are not doing this, it is because they are planning transition periods for new pupils or phasing entry to alleviate pupils’ anxieties, according to the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT). The school leaders’ union conducted a survey with a week to go before the first day of term and more than 4,000 school leaders responded – 4,090 in total, mostly in England, with 143 in Wales.
