800 young people have returned to school

All students due back in classrooms next week

Eight-hundred students have returned to schools as part of a phased return across the Island.

Teachers and staff were allowed back on Monday, with around 450 primary school children returning on Tuesday.

It began with vulnerable children and those of key workers.

And nearly 350 students in exam years have returned to secondary school.

All children are due to head back to classes from Monday (19 April) providing no new unexplained cases of Covid-19 emerge.

Parents and carers of those who usually get free school meals are to receive vouchers for groceries instead.

That's £11.75 for primary age and £14.56 for secondary, to use at all Shoprite stores.
