Coronavirus: UK schools prepare for online classes in event of widespread closures
Schools in the UK are preparing online learning resources, getting work ready for pupils to take home and cancelling events as they brace for potential closures due to coronavirus
As part of the government’s “battle plan”, schools may be forced to close if the outbreak worsens. However, Public Health England’s advice is for them to stay open unless there is a positive case.
But school staff have begun discussing how to best minimise disruption to pupils’ learning and exam preparation in the event of widespread school closures to contain the spread of the virus.
