Coronavirus, children and you
Advice, information, suggestions, answers and resources to help during the pandemic
“We’ve put this page together, not just to pass on official guidance, which is important, but to reflect both your thoughts and questions that have been raised during the crisis and the response to it and where possible provide you with clarity and answers. We will also lay out where we are lobbying for changes to the response to make them even more effective for help children and their families.”

Learning for a range of subjects and abilities:
The BBC have plans to expand their educational resources and programmes. You might want to check out the following as they are developed:
- A daily educational programme for different key stages or year groups - with a complementary self-learning programme for students to follow, broadcast on BBC Red Button and made available on demand on BBC iPlayer.
- Expanding BBC Bitesize content, with our social media running daily troubleshooting Q&As focusing on a different subject each day.
- Increasing our educational programming on BBC iPlayer, bringing together the best from BBC Bitesize, BBC Teach and the wider BBC portfolio where educationally appropriate.
- Creating two new daily educational podcasts for BBC Sounds, one for primary and one for secondary.
- BBC Four and BBC Red Button devoting a block of programming each weekday evening to show programmes that support the GCSE and A Level curriculum. In Scotland, the Scotland channel will support the Scottish NQs and Highers in daytime.
With schools closing Premier League Primary Stars will be making their free #PLPrimaryStars resources easy for everyone to use, not just teachers.
The curriculum-linked activities for ages 5-11 (and older children too) cover English and Maths, Health & Wellbeing and Physical Activity, and feature Premier League stars and mascots that will engage them during this challenging time.
Follow the link below for more information on how the Premier League can help you educate and entertain your children at home.
