A child's first day at school is a key milestone in their young life.

As pupils return to class this week after the summer break, parents have shared special photos of their child's first day in reception.

The start of school looks much more 'normal' this year compared to last year when strict Covid-19 measures were in place.

Good luck to all the children who have just started their school journey.
