Children across Europe are returning to school this week, but the reopening of classrooms after months of lockdown has already highlighted some issues. Here’s how various countries are planning to welcome children back:

  • In France, schools will open nationwide on Tuesday for almost 13 million young people, despite a sharp rise in coronavirus cases. Masks will be required for everyone aged over 11 – including teachers
  • In Germany, where schools in some areas have been reopening over the past three weeks, parents have complained that children are being packed too tightly into school buses
  • Meanwhile, Spain is planning to reopen most of its schools on Tuesday. Masks will be mandatory for those over the age of six and staff and children will have their temperatures taken before the day begins. Some schools have even created makeshift classrooms outside to increase space
  • But in Turkey, the new term will begin today in slightly different circumstances. Students there will learn remotely using a dedicated online platform. Face-to-face teaching will begin on 21 September but there are reports this may be postponed further
