ALL pupils will return to school full-time in the North of Ireland from the beginning of term, the Education Minister Peter Weir has announced.
He said the NI Executive had made the decision a “strategic prioritisation” at its meeting on Thursday.
Years One to 10, the minister outlined, will return to class in protected bubbles.
He said there would be efforts to minimise movements between classes for Years 11 to 14.
Schools have been closed since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
