  • All primary and secondary schools have closed, after England moved into a third national lockdown.
  • The Government had insisted schools would remain open only a day before the new measures were announced, reassuring parents it was “safe” to send their children back for the start of term on January 4.
  • The Department for Education (DfE) said children with at least one parent or carer who was a critical worker could attend class – even if parents were working from home.
