Kate Green – 2021 Comments on Children Missing School

The comments made by Kate Green, the Shadow Secretary of State for Education, on 20 July 2021.

The Conservatives have abandoned the nation’s children with no action taken to turn the tide on rising cases in schools.

Parents and schools have been crying out for help, but the Conservatives have washed their hands of their responsibility to keep children learning.

The Government must take action to keep children learning for the last week of term, and ensure that by September schools have the support they need to avoid further disruption to children’s education.’
