All UK Schools will be closed starting from Friday the 20th of March until further notice, A-Level and GCSE exams will also be cancelled. This was announced today Wednesday the 18th by Educational Secretary, Gavin Williamson during MPs conference.

This will apply to all children – except to those of key workers and vulnerable kids.
The news comes two weeks before schools are expected to break up for the Easter holiday, and they may not reopen before the six-week summer break. “I can announce today, that after schools shut their gates from Friday afternoon, they will remain closed to most people, from further notice.” Said MP, Boris Johnson. “Nurseries, private schools and further education colleges will follow suit, he added explaining that the spread of coronavirus is “slowing” – but he would go “further and faster” if he needed to in the coming days.

“The scientific evidence shows these settings are safe for this small number of children to continue attending.
“But asking others to stay out of s will go towards helping us slow the spread of this virus.”
