Parliament should allow children in reception to go back to school as early as after spring half term 2021. It should be the first measure to be relaxed throughout England. 4/5 years old should go back to normal school setting to ensure that their emotional and social development is not at risk.

Reception is still following EYFS curriculum. 4 / 5 years old children should be allowed to go back to school setting after half term. The primary goal for children of this age group is to develop socially and emotionally. Online learning is detrimental for their development. Allowing reception year to go back to school after half term would have minimal impact on R rate as recent studies on children confirm that this age group do not transmit the virus or minimally transmit it.
