Teaching unions have reacted angrily to the suggestion that the dates for the reopening of schools should be revisited by the Executive.

Arlene Foster wants to put the dates, which would see those in primary one to three only returning on March 8, back on the agenda ahead of the Executive’s review of lockdown restrictions next Monday.

Unions and head teachers said the suggestion throws more confusion at pupils, parents and teachers about the plan for pupils to return to face to face teaching.
