The latest update!
Education minister for Wales, Kirsty Williams, made a statement in regards to schools opening, here’s a recap;
All schools in Wales will reopen on 29 June, the education minister has said.
They will be open to pupils from all year groups for limited periods during the week, with only a third of pupils in school at any one time, Kirsty Williams said.
Schools and councils will make their own decisions over managing the return.
The summer term has been extended by one week to 27 July, and the autumn half-term holiday will be stretched to two weeks.
Parents who choose not to send their children to school will not be fined and children who fall into the shielding category will carry on with online learning.
Year groups will be split into smaller classes with staggered starts, lessons and breaks. It is expected this will mean, at most, a third of pupils present at any one time, though schools may need time to reach this level.
All children will have the opportunity to “check in, catch up, prepare for summer and September”, Ms Williams said.
