Millions of schoolchildren will be allowed to come into school late on Monday morning as teachers point to England's Euro 2020 final clash against Italy as a 'learning opportunity'. 

Growing numbers of schools from all corners of the country, from London to Lancashire, are informing parents that children can arrive later than usual on Monday morning so they can watch England face off against Italy.

Several teachers have pointed to Sunday's final, England's biggest game in more than half a century, as an 'historic moment' and a 'learning opportunity' for schoolchildren. 

After more than 27million viewers tuned in to watch the Three Lions triumph over Denmark in the semi-finals, broadcasters are expecting a similar boom in figures for England's first major international final in 55 years.

As schools prepare for a later start, there has been a number of calls for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to give the nation an unexpected Bank Holiday boost should England lift the trophy on Sunday evening.
