A Headteacher at a Dorchester school has urged his parents and carers not to make any promises to their children about when school will return. 

Gary Spracklen is the Headteacher at The Prince of Wales School in Dorchester.

He said:

"While it's good that we are starting to have dialogue about children returning to school, we need to see the detail."

In a letter sent to his parents and carers on Sunday, following the Prime Minster's speech Mr Spracklen stated:

"Naturally, we all want to be back together, however, I insist safety must come first."
