The Education Minister has urged schools to 'go easy' on pupils who might not be adhering to uniform policy as the return to the classrooms begins across Northern Ireland.

Though Peter Weir does not have any say in uniform policy, which is set by boards of governors, he has asked individual schools to avoid creating additional pressure or expense for parents as the country takes the first steps to move out of lockdown.

There have been fears many parents will have been unable to afford to update uniforms for pupils over the past year, with some families struggling financially.
