Other grades will be phased in during July and August, some starting from 6 July with the rest back in class from 3 August.

See the table below for return dates for the different grades as well as remedial schools:

In the latest directive, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga says only those schools that have complied with the minimum Covid-19 health, safety and social distancing measures will be allowed to open.

A parent who chooses not to send a child to school is obliged to apply to the head of department and for home education in terms of section 4 of the South African Schools Act.

As it stands, the May/June matric examinations have been moved to November/December.
