An announcement on the reopening of England’s schools ahead of next week’s January start date will be made by the Education Secretary, it has been reported.

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson is expected to make an announcement ahead of the reopening of schools to the House of Commons.

It isn’t clear what Mr Williamson will say when he addresses the Commons at around 4pm, but there is speculation he may delay the return of schools.

Mr Williamson's statement comes just days after Michael Gove told Sky News the Government would pursue a staggered approach to the return of children to education.
