Horsham schools’ plans to fully reopen halted by council

Parents from two primary schools in West Sussex have staged a protest after plans to fully reopen to all pupils were over-ruled by the local authority.

Kingslea and Heron Way primary schools in Horsham were bringing back Years 2 to 5 on Monday after initially opening to Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.

The schools said they had received “unwavering support” from parents.
