This is an opportunity to reframe and improve our education system. - Pupils moving into P1 will not be disadvantaged if their delayed start is not until later in year. Much research shows that starting school at 6 is more beneficial - the school years 2019-20/ 2020-21 should be rolled into 1 year. Let children return and stay in current year group delay transition

Why the contribution is important

It is important for all to return to a safe and nurturing environment with staff they know well who can catch them up and prepare for next stage. We need to get rid of the notion of having ‘lost’ a year. If everyone dies it we’ll Be in the same position. thus is not business as usual.

    This would be an excellent opportunity for us to raise school entry age to plus 5 to be more in line with Scandinavian countries. This in itself would also support raising attainment as children would have developed more robust social skills
