The Education Minister has dismissed the notion of all children repeating the school year despite them missing up to seven months of face-to-face teaching.

And he said that despite no date for a return to the classroom yet being agreed, he is expecting all schools to be planning to reopen on March 8.

However, as he considers recovery options, one idea is to open schools up over the summer months with teachers asked to volunteer and get paid for helping students to catch up.
