The number of children absent from school due to suspected Covid infections hit the highest level of the pandemic this month, according to official Department for Education figures.

In this episode of the COVID-19 Series, we look at what is currently happening in schools with regards to Covid - how outbreaks are being contained, the impact on children, and what needs to happen going forward.

Chaired by Andrew Jack, Global Education Editor for the Financial Times, our guests are Dr Camilla Kingdon, President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, Dr Christina Pagel, Director of the Clinical Operational Research Unit at UCL, and Leora Cruddas, Chief Executive of the Confederation of School Trusts.
