Quote: The general secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers, Paul Whiteman, said the plan was the latest in a long line of eye-catching announcements that would suffer from a lack of input from the teaching profession. NAHT were not involved with the plan to return for all primary children
He said it was not credible to think academic catch up could be achieved over the summer, and warned that the impact of enforced isolation on young people was little understood but likely to be significant.
But he said support was clearly needed for pupils over the summer, and urged the government to fund a locally co-ordinated offer involving youth groups and charities.
Quote: The Children's Commissioner for England, Anne Longfield, warned last week that there were just two weeks left to set such summer learning projects up.
Quote: And the House of Commons Education Committee chairman, Robert Halfon, has called for a Nightingale Hospital style plan to get schools back to capacity.
^ ^ ^^ ^^^^ ^^
Do we believe Gavin Williamson will be setting out a lot more next week about the catch-up programme as promised by BJ? I'd like to see evidence of the 'right' people involved in putting together this plan.
