Government in England to look at ‘range of measures’ for children missing school

North of England Correspondent

Schools in Northern Ireland will have a one metre social distancing rule, rather than the current two metres, when they reopen in August, allowing class sizes there to return to almost normal levels.

In England, the government says it’s looking at a “range of measures” to help children catch up after missing months of schooling.

It’s believed around a third of nurseries and primary schools haven’t brought children back.
