“Over the last while I have been contacted by Head Teachers, teachers and parents from right across the North Antrim constituency and beyond about the lack of clear guidance and uncertainty about the return to school.

“Schools are doing their best to prepare but are trying to work off conflicting guidance and public statements from the Minister. Parents in particular are worried about how a return to school will look like and what procedures will be in place.
