Many children in England return to school from Tuesday with new guidance from the government on the use of secondary pupils wearing face masks in classrooms. School leaders have warned there could be weeks of disruption due to high levels of staff Covid absences.
In Northern Ireland, most schools return on the same day and face masks are recommended. In Scotland, schools are due to return on 5 or 6 January where secondary pupils continue to wear face masks. The same applies in Wales where schools return on 10 January at the latest.
If you are a teacher, we would like to hear your thoughts and experiences on the return to school. If face masks have recently been introduced, what are your thoughts? Do you have any concerns?
