Teachers in north Norfolk have done a “phenomenal job” in getting children back to school, as part of the easing of lockdown, an MP said.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Duncan Baker, North Norfolk MP, said: “Teachers in north Norfolk have been phenomenal in their efforts in getting children back to school.”
Mr Baker asked Education Secretary Gavin Williamson for reassurance that vulnerable children who cannot go back to school yet would still get an excellent education.
Earlier, Mr Baker said: “I’m a father of a four-year-old child who was desperate to get back to school, so I thank him (Mr Williamson) for enabling that to happen.”
