Coronavirus: Will children be back to school by September? – BBC Newsnight

published on July 9, 2020

Sorry always started how many of us cansay school days began with cosmic yogathe st Paul's a primary school on theworld it is one of many changes manyrecalibrations to its day to the way itmust work like others the school is openfor a smattering of children in a

Handful of year groups they're stilltrying to provide an education for oneof the more deprived schools in Englandtrying to plan ahead in an age wheretomorrow seems distant so what we can doas heads is to plan for reopening

Hopefully in September but nobody knowswhere we're going to be thereyes that's the Breakfast Club normallyThe Breakfast Club would meet in here sothen normally during the school day thisis a type of activity with children

Going backwards and forwards to theirclassrooms but as you can see thenotices this is a child free area at theRoland's everyone has to stay in theirown bubble and we have siblings inbubbles as well so that makes it a

Little bit difficult when you're tryingto work not so much for the key workersbut when we bring the other children andI'm still fearful I can't speak aboutall the permits but I'm still foreveryou later what scares you so much about

Cuz they can still be effective eventhough there's there's evidence tosuggest it's a little evidence there's alot of evidence that hasn't been sharedas far as I'm concerned so how do youmean

I think a lot of evidence has beenBarry's you don't trust what you'rehearing if government turns around yousay people you know you don't trust himmaybe other people don't trust ingovernment says September everyone comes

Back do you reckon people will send themin don't ma'am that's that's my honestanswer don't know there are peopleconfident schools are ready to reopeninform but it isn't the case everywhereand the variation arises at least partly

From how different people hear differentthings from on high I think theirgovernment so give misinformation andthen change the minds so nobody reallyknows don't trust what you hear or whatpeople don't trust with what the hero

Exactly for me they're all governmentyeahThank You those and because one baby canto go and bar for their friends gray andthen you change it and the weekly citywhere the only thing that we can do is

Is keep that trust with them and showthem that we are doing whatever we canto keep their children safe you think ifthe government says in September thateveryone will come back its compulsoryagain that's we're abandoning social

Distancing do you think people wouldlisten everyone would a bear Wow no Idon't know I don't think so because theythey would still be worried and and theywould do what they think is best fortheir children

And used to be at school yourself I didWow pull me when it was fired till itwas how are they were finding at themoment with kovaydin why were theyworried about you working she'sabsolutely petrified so she won't return

Them in she would even let the Box manin the other day which he not worriedabout you coming in we told her yeah areyou coming yeah little bit are youworried no no I wanna clean this onemaking sure it everywhere spotless stuff

People are still really scared I yeahbut these aren't the only fears whichmatter on the world there's a fear tothe degeneration of poor kids alreadydestined to have to fight harder will beburdened still great depart areas to

Sort ninety percent of the childrencomment to scorn on entry they'rescreened for language difficulties it'sreally important that they're gettingthe support at an early age and fatherin school because because their brains

Are just more adaptable in a way whenthey're young and most of them was thecalf point them whether their brainsstart to become less adaptable I thinkonce there's about four years and inTier one in YouTube's or six seven and

You name it does become much moredifficult in my experience at that ageto sort of help them with those thingsthe government has suggested privatetuition lengthening the school day toarrest these problems

The head teacher here though isskeptical I think it could be quitedifficult in that the children haven'tbeen in school for six months so then tobring them in and expect them to dolonger hours or come in on the Saturday

I I don't know that they would do thatlengthening the school day it's notnecessarily going to make that muchdifference in terms of learning becausethey'll just be at saturation point atthat that stage we have done everything

We can in order to care for our childrenand we do care about them and theirfamilieslock down have you found it good goodwhy good I gotta see my friends this isa school which has done all it can to a

Swage parents fears but in some placesespecially places with less trust in faraway Authority fear remains fear andanxiety fear from the parents fear forthe teachers fear for the kids I thinkthat's the missing element in this

Conversation we keep talking aboutschools without really talking aboutfear and conversely if government doesdecide to reduce the two meter rule fromtwo to one weirdly that could make thefear worse because parents might

Conclude the schools are even less safethan they feared they were in the firstplacethis is a school well thought of by itscommunity they trust its staff ministersdo not appear to enjoy the same

Confidence it is a theme which could yetderail this most important task ofreturning a generation to the schoolswhere they belong
