Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has welcomed a return to school for all children.
The party’s education spokesperson said:
“It’s welcome news that children have returned to face-to-face learning today in schools across the north.
“This has been a really difficult time for children, parents and school staff as they adapt to new ways of learning and I commend parent, pupils and schools for their great work during home schooling.
“It’s vital that we do everything possible to support our school staff with the safe reopening of schools.”
