THE region's classrooms are set to welcome some year groups back to school on Monday as the government eases some rules on the coronavirus lockdown.

Schools in much of the North-East and North Yorkshire are set to reopen their doors to Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils on June 1.

But just last night, Durham County Council said the government's target for secondary school pupils of June 15 was a 'more realistic' date to reopen.

The council's claims came as the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), said there was some evidence to suggest that children are as susceptible to Covid-19 as adults, athough that is not conclusive.

But since plans were first laid out to reopen schools to certain year groups, The Northern Echo's readers have been left divided.

So as we prepare to enter the final weekend before the June 1 date in some schools, we're asking you for your decision and why you made it.
