Throughout this week, schools across London are re-opening after the summer break but can they avoid the shutdowns that blighted last year? Our education editor Anna Davis takes us through what steps are being taken by teachers and pupils to keep Covid-19 at bay, even though face masks aren't mandatory and 'bubbles' are no longer in use. There's also uncertainty about lessons themselves, with teachers saying that, despite government assurances, they don't know if there will be exams held at the end of the school year or how they will be assessed if they are. And Anna tells us about the mental health issues that some school heads are concerned about, with warnings support services are coming under increased pressure as teenagers return to the classroom and problems from the lockdown emerge.
