Millions of pupils in England return to classrooms after schools closure over Covid-19

Millions of pupils in England are returning to the classroom today after a historic closure of schools during the nationwide lockdown.

For many students, it was the first time they have stepped into a classroom since March.

With coronavirus cases still rising across the country, schools have been instructed to introduce new health and safety measures to protect students and teachers.

Pupils will be grouped into bubbles to reduce the transmission of the virus. In primary schools, an entire class will form a bubble, and in secondary schools entire year groups will form bubbles.
