England Vs Italy: English Schools Adjust Resumption Time To Allow Pupils Watch EURO Final

Schools in England have granted kids late start on Monday to allow them watch their first European Championship finals since 1966.

England will face Italy at Wembley Stadium in London on Monday breaking a 55-year jinx.

Also a petition calling for a bank holiday has already gathered more than 325,000 signatures.

Abingdon Primary School & Children Centre in the UK said children can stay up to 11.00am on Monday to help them recover after watching the match late on Sunday.

The match will begin by 8.00pm and will be over by 10.00pm if the winner emerges after the regular 90 minutes.

But if the match is dragged to extra time and a possible penalty shoot-out, the match could end by 11.00pm.

“If your child is a football fan and likely to watch the final, then let them stay in bad a bit longer and come to school by 11.00am on Monday. We would rather have children rested and in school ready to learn than absent all day or grumpy!” the school said.

It added that school will still open the usual 8.30am but children arriving by will not be marked late.

Another school, Malin Bridge Primary School’s headmaster Robbie McGrath wrote in a letter to parents that “I’m sure that, like me, many of you are exceptionally excited about Sunday’s Euro 2020 (but in 2021) final.

“Consequently, we understand that parents may want to bring their children in late on Monday, as they will have had a late night.”
