Schools are to remain closed until further notice, except to children of key workers and vulnerable pupils, as part of the UK’s national response to the coronavirus outbreak. The way schools and colleges are currently operating in response to coronavirus (COVID-19) is fundamentally different to business as usual. Most children are no longer in a school setting and staff numbers have been affected by the outbreak. Schools have been asked to provide care for children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at homeduring the COVID 19 outbreak.
