As part of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the UK Government has commissioned a free book for all Primary school age children across the United Kingdom to celebrate the achievements of the Monarch over the last 70 years.
The Welsh Government, who are responsible for education in Wales, have decided that pupils will not automatically receive this book, and schools need to opt in and order these books.
I am disappointed that the Welsh Government have taken this stance, which makes it unnecessarily difficult for children to receive this commemorative book.
I have written to all primary schools this week to notify them of the opt-in which is now open and closes on Wednesday 11th May 2022.
Books can be ordered by filling in this form.
