Half of primary schools in England have reopened
Around half of primary schools in England reopened to more children last week, official Government figures show.
The pupil attendance rate in nursery and primary schools was 11% on Thursday last week – the first week that schools in England began admitting children in nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.
The Department for Education (DfE) figures show that 52% of education settings that normally accept at least one of these year groups were open to additional children on June 4.
The Government statistics are the first indication of pupil attendance since more children in England began returning to school and nursery last week.
