Class bubbles, face masks and pupils undergoing Covid testing: children attending school this year have faced more than any classroom cohort before them.
Lockdown learning at home, school closures and pupils being sent home to isolate after positive Covid cases have made it a disruptive 12 months.
It has left schools and teachers facing unprecedented challenges but the biggest impact has been on families and children themselves.
A new study by the National Foundation for Educational Research found pupils' wellbeing and mental health has deteriorated since the pandemic, with some pupils suffering from Covid-related anxiety.

With the end of term approaching, we want to find out more from parents about the impact the extra pressures of the pandemic have had on them and their children.
