Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to announce his 'roadmap' out of lockdown today (February 22) starting with the reopening of schools.

The Prime Minister is set to confirm the reopening of schools on March 8 as the start of his roadmap out of lockdown.

As well as schools reopening the government will announce after school sports and activities will also be restarting on March 8.

Mr Johnson is set to announce a route out of lockdown for the nation at 3.30pm today in the House of Commons, before briefing the nation at 7pm.

At this stage it is unclear whether a phased year-by-year return to schools will be administered nationally.

Children in Dacorum - except for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers - have been learning remotely since the country went into lockdown on January 4.

According to widespread national media reports, a coalition of education unions and professional bodies has warned a full return of all pupils at the same time would be a "reckless" course of action.

Universities have also been offering remote teaching.
