"As noted by the Prime Minister and the Chief Medical and Chief Scientific Officer schools are remaining open for the time being, in the meantime we are seeking clarification from the Department for Education on what will happen in the event of school closures, especially on free school meal pupils. We will update you when we have information to share."
