Administrations across the Union are now focused on returning children to full-time education. In Scotland, thousands of students are already returning to the classroom under plans for a phased re-opening of schools, with all schools intended to be fully open by August 18. In Northern Ireland, key groups will be asked to attend school from August 24, and in Wales, schools have been encouraged to focus on key groups from September 1, before reopening for all year groups two weeks later.
