As my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education, made clear when he spoke at the daily press briefing on 19 June, the Department is working towards bringing all children and young people back to school in September. We intend to announce further plans over the coming weeks, including guidance to school leaders on the protective measures necessary to support this.
