Primary and secondary schools set to reopen over three-week period in March

The reopening of primary and secondary schools is likely to take place over a three-week period in March according to a number of senior education sources.

Special education is to partially reopen this Thursday with 50% student attendance with a full reopening of special classes in primary schools expected to take place on the 22nd of February.

Secondary-level special classes are likely to reopen in late February. Mainstream classes for primary and secondary education are likely to reopen over a three-week period in advance of the Easter holidays on March 26th.

Talks have yet to take place in regards to which year groups will return first. In primary education, sources say that junior and senior infants will most likely return first as remote learning is difficult for these age groups.

In secondary education, third and sixth years will be prioritised in the reopening of secondary schools.
