Rosedale Primary School in Scawsby will allow pupils to come in later on Monday.

"However, children arriving up to 10:30am will not be marked as late and will not miss any lessons.

"Please note if your child is in Year 6 – they must arrive on time for their trip!

“It is 55 years since the England Football Team reached a major final so if you are a football fan and you want them to stay up late and watch, we would rather they arrived at school well rested and ready to learn.

"In the build up to the game, please use this as a learning opportunity and talk to them about having pride in our country, the importance of the national anthem, and teach them about the resilience we have shown and the disappointments we have had.

"Most of all, enjoy the game, have fun with your children, and let’s bring it home!”
