Hertfordshire schools are seeing a “great deal of variability” in the number of children who have returned to the classroom this week, it has been revealed.

Hertfordshire primary schools are busy welcoming back their nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils after months of isolation due to COVID-19.

A petition launched by a concerned father of three to prevent schools from reopening has received more than 2,000 responses.

Rotary Stevenage Grange has created an online chess challenge to help keep Stevenage residents socially active during the COVID-19 lockdown.
