  • I thought This is usually a nightie area where Children work in close proximity with adults as well because of social distance in, we've had Thio shut that area down but using it for a different purpose.

  • Now, adapting in the time of pandemic on now, preparing for some return to normality, I think we've got to ensure that we reduce Children's anxieties, staff anxieties and parent anxieties.

  • And we've got to do all of that on March the eighth rather than over a staggered period, but with a heavy legacy from largely shuttered schools.

  • MAWR Support Toe Help With the Recovery The government announced today that it will now be providing a total off £1.7 billion to help Children catch up on lost education.

  • New money means an extra £22,000 for the average secondary school on £6000 for the average primary school from a new one off 302 million recovery premium fund in all in extra 700 million was unveiled today, 300 million of which was announced by the prime minister last month, a guarded welcome from one primary school head teacher.

  • Every bit of fund is going to make a difference.

  • We can use that funding creatively.

  • I mean, I guess there's always the argument that is never going to be enough.

  • School of this size were large 730 Children in a primary school.

  • £6000 goes nowhere, but hopefully we get we get more than that I said were larger than average, but it is definitely needed.

  • Roll out a hint, perhaps, that the government should be even more ambitious in this area.

  • Gavin Williamson says he's rising to the occasion, someone who has two daughters at school.

  • I'm absolutely certain that we are going to do everything we can do for all of our Children to make sure that they do not.

  • They're not set back by this pandemic that their life chances air in any way, not stinted.

  • We're going to do everything we can do to make sure that they can reach our absolute potential.

  • Actually, the scale of the challenge means that it's it's really quite a modest amount for the government to be investing.

  • We need a bigger, bolder and longer term plan to support young people to catch up with their education, but also to support their well being because they've missed out a lot in the last year.

  • Tranquility for the moment.
