The BBC is putting on its ‘biggest education offer’, after pupils across England were told to stay at home until at least mid-February.

While teachers will continue giving online learning, parents will still have to juggle homeschooling their children with work.

Announcing efforts to help these families, economics editor Faisal Islam tweeted: ‘My BBC colleagues are putting on its biggest ever education offer including, as many asked for on this thread “significant airtime” on terrestrial BBC Two, as well as CBBC, Red button, Iplayer.’

The new programme will run for three hours a day and will start from Monday.
