The Department of Education Inspectorate will engage with schools on a weekly basis during Level 5 restrictions. That's according to the teacher's union the INTO.
It's over concerns raised by parents that some schools have not as yet set up remote learning for students.
General Secretary of the INTO, John Boyle says schools have worked as quickly as possible since receiving the latest public health guidance. In many cases school text books have only been collected by students and parents today and yesterday and he says the latest Level 5 restrictions were not anticipated when schools closed before Christmas.
