Exclusive: headteachers in city warn of ‘major threat’ to public services unless schools are allowed to partially close

One in four children in Hull are absent from school due to a rapid rise in coronavirus cases, official figures show, as headteachers in the city have warned of a “major threat” to public services unless schools are allowed to partially close.

Figures seen by the Guardian show that 27.6% of pupils were not in school on Monday – compared with about one in 10 across England – equating to about 12,000 children at home.
