Phased return to schools to get under way next week

The Taoiseach has confirmed that a phased return to schools will get under way next Monday, March 1. The phased return is part of the Government's revised plan for dealing with the virus, 'Covid-19 Resilience & Recovery 2021: The Path Ahead'.

The plan, which will see the country remain in Level 5 restrictions until 5 April, contains a roadmap for the return of all children to school and childcare, which will be kept under review.

It was agreed at a Cabinet meeting today. It will see Leaving Certificate students returning to school on 1 March. Primary school students from junior infants to second class will also return then.
