Some schools in England allowed children to enter late on Monday and some companies have adjusted their opening times due to the Euro 2020 final.

Rossmere Primary School in Hartlepool led the charge, which announced on Facebook, in a post that went viral, that children could enter at 10:30 a.m. on Monday morning if they stayed up late to watch the England-Italy game on Sunday night, calling the game a “learning experience”.

the the final at Wembley Stadium will start at 8 p.m. and should be finished by 10 p.m. if set in 90 minutes, but if there’s overtime and potentially shots on goal, it could end closer to 11 p.m.

Other schools quickly followed suit, with some saying parents can choose to have their children arrive during regular hours or sleep in.

The Sheffield Primary School, which striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin attended as a child, gave the green light for a late morning Monday.

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

Mr McGrath added: “Therefore, we understand that parents may want to bring their children late on Monday because they will have had a late evening.”

He also paid tribute to Calvert-Lewin, saying football holds “a special place in the heart of the Malin Bridge community”.

“To see him make the squad alongside many other teammates from Sheffield and Yorkshire fills us with immense pride,” wrote Mr McGrath.
