Doubt they'll open on time, we seem a few days away from further closures if anything.

Atm yes, however the recent spike in cases may suggest the government may have to hold back their plans.

I think every effort will be made to open them on 1 September, even if shutting down other areas of society will be required to enable this. It's got to be a top priority now.

Well I know in Greater Manchester, Yorkshire etc we are on temporary lockdown because people keep going to each other’s houses. They said we would be back in June lol do u really think we will be back in September. Some of my friends went back in July and they couldn’t even guarantee safety, there’s no way everyone will go back in time. Other countries have gone back on lockdown like Australia too, the health secretary fears a second lockdown so it’s clearly not getting better and scientists have said they think a lockdown will happen till winter from sky news.

I want to go back to school, but I don't see how they can make it 'covid secure'. Children and teenagers CANNOT socially distance.

There's no intention now for them to so do, presumably because of what you say: it's not possible. The idea I think now is for the 'adults' to wall themselves off from the diseased children, though again how this will work in practice is anyone's guess.

This terrible government likes to make it all up as we go along, so I don't think it's wise for anyone to make any definite plans.

already been around 5-6 months, and possibly might not go back until next year? GCSEs and A Levels will be cancelled next year is my prediction.

Yeah because Hancock wasn’t sure even if we go back in September, so I reckon around November ish. Yeah the cases are extremely high in particular areas, it’s going to be crazy if we have it at Christmas tho with all the shopping and presents. I know here that they’re having certain opening times for shops for older people again. The reason the pubs + non-essential shops are still open here and they’re restricting going to households which makes no sense, it’s for the economy so they can make money and then when the cases rise again and enough money has been made, they will close them again.

You never know, boris might announce the night before schools recommences that they cannot open. They did that with the local lockdowns a couple of days ago.

Yeah if u go on Sky news they say winter, a lot of other universities etc have announced online schooling next year. So possibly who knows. I know in other countries this has been the case. They haven’t found an actually cure yet or anything so it doesn’t matter the virus will still spread around even when easing the lockdown.
