Kate Green responds to national school attendance data

Kate Green MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Education, commenting on national school attendance data published today, said:


“The government’s failure to get the pandemic under control months ago means that one in six children have been out of school for the second week in a row.


“The government must respond to Labour’s calls to publish how many children have now missed school multiple times, urgently set out support to keep schools open, ensure children self-isolating have access remote learning and set out a plan for exams which delivers certainty for pupils, teachers and parents.”
