SCHOOLS in England will stay closed until at least mid-February as a new national lockdown is introduced.
Boris Johnson has promised free school meals will continue as schools close, and more laptops will be dished out to pupils across the nation who need them in order to learn remotely.
The Prime Minister made the announcement last night in a televised address to the nation tonight as he once again urged Brits to “stay at home”.
Schools are set to stay shut across the nation until at least February half-term, when measures will be reconsidered.
Nurseries, childcare centres and special schools will remain open and vulnerable children and children of key workers can continue to attend school.
