Meanwhile at Salcombe Church of England Primary School in Devon, pupils are also being encourage to stay up late on Sunday to watch the game.
The school said in a Facebook post: "If your child is a football fan and likely to be staying up on Sunday to watch the Euro 2020 final, then let them stay in bed a bit longer and get to school by 10.30am on Monday.
"We would rather have children rested and in school ready to learn rather than absent all day or tired and unable to concentrate.
"School will start at 8.40am but children arriving up to 10.30 won’t be marked as late, and they won’t miss any lessons.
