I live opposite a primary school and their website had given instructions for today about how taking children into the school playground would be staggered and what the children were to expect in the day. I was quite amazed to see parents waiting at the front, sitting on the wall and standing in small groups, obviously for their childrens friends to arive and then walking all in together. This school is only open for the set year groups, nursery, reception, years 1 and 6, apparently about 150 children. Goodness knows what it will be like when years 2,3,4 and 5 join them. Although I am sure once inside the children will be as safe as they can be under the circumstances, it is all a bit worrying, and I could join others in saying, just a bit too soon.

My stepdaughters younger daughter has been to school during the lockdown as both parents are doctors. The older one who is 14 has been having online lessons.
