From the fear of rising Covid-19 cases to getting children up to speed academically, it would appear teachers have their work cut out as the new term begins.
So what are the biggest concerns from parents and school staff - and how will pupils be affected?
Join our special guests to discuss the current situation on tonight's live-streamed episode of The Lowdown.
Our host Oliver Kemp is joined by Alan Brookes, chair of the Kent Association of Headteachers.
They are also joined by KentOnline's very own Lauren Abbott.
The Lowdown is a daily show live-streamed Monday to Thursday at 6.00pm - here on KentOnline, Facebook and Twitter, and KMTV.
