Simon Cotterill, headteacher at Manor Park is looking forward to welcoming pupils back into the classroom

"The remote and in school blended learning at Manor Park has gone extremely well since lock down began at the start of January but I know that the children will benefit greatly from being in school together.

"It is also important to recognise the role that parents and carers have had in their children's education during these difficult times. They have all done a tremendous job."

James Whittaker, headteacher of Knutsford Academy, said: "We are very much looking forward to welcoming students back into school.

"Over the coming days we will work on the precise phasing of our students’ return to school and we are also currently awaiting further guidance from the Government which will inform our approach.

"I would also like to take this opportunity to thank parents again for their ongoing support over what has been a very challenging 12 months."
