Claire Williams started this petition to Boris Johnson (Prime Minister) and

I would like the government to consider allowing school age pupils of all year groups to be able to repeat the current year of school starting from September 2021. So current year 1 would return to year 1, current year 2 return to year 2 in sept 2021 and so forth.

As the legal age to attend school is currently 5 years old I don’t think this should impact the early years education as much as the impact of current school age children missing out on a year of ‘normal’ school life. Events such as school trips, end of primary school parties for children starting high school, the prom, not to mention SATS for year 6’s and GCSES for year 11s, I find it so sad that it’s going to carry on and move forward not caring that these children have missed out not only on education but massive events in their school years that they will remember forever. 

Could this be a possibility to consider going forward? 
They have missed out on a year of education and why can’t there be a new generation of school children that leave at 17 instead of 16? Surely this can be put in place? I understand that early years education is supposed to be allowing free childcare hours for ages 2 and above but as frustrating for the parents of toddlers this may be think about our current school age children and how much they have missed out on.

Please sign this petition and let’s see if we can get our kids the ‘lost year’ returned to them
