Welcome to the Tes coronavirus liveblog. The outbreak of Covid-19 is an uncertain time for everyone.
Schools are facing unprecedented disruption with exams cancelled and many teachers working with small "bubbles" of pupils or delivering remote lessons.
Here, we aim to help teachers in the UK and in international schools by gathering together all the relevant stories in one place and keeping you updated with the latest news and announcements as and when they happen.
And, as ever, we also want to hear from you. What is different in your school, in your working life, because of the virus? If you have stories you want to share or information you think should be circulated, then contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com and Mary-Louise.Clews@tes.com.
Circular table and face mask bans – DfE's 16-point draft plan for September revealed
So much for what the official sources said today about the future of schools and Ofsted.
Now thanks to a leak of draft plans reported today, we can start to build up a much fuller picture of a full school return.
The fines are there as is news on Ofsted, with inspections to remain suspended until Christmas at least. But the plans provide much more detail besides.
They suggest face coverings and circular tables are to be banned and non-core subjects potentially dropped.
There is also a requirement for heads "not to put in any staff rota or physical distancing that would require extra space or make it impossible for all pupils to return full-time".
With teaching unions still being consulted these draft plans could change yet prior to their official release, expected to be on Thursday.
So far their reception has not been universally positive with the NEU teaching union describing the leaked guidance as "fantasy" and "un-doable".
Williamson: Fines will help ensure full attendance in September
Gavin Williamson has said parents will face fines if they do not send their children back to school in September.
“We are absolutely adamant that school is the best place for a child to be and it is going to be compulsory for children to return to be at school unless there is a very good reason,” the education secretary said today.
“Unless there was a good reason for the absence then we would be looking at the fact that we would be imposing fines on families if they’re not sending their children back.”

No Ofsted for at least another month
School staff may be relieved to hear they won’t be subject to Ofsted inspections until next month at the earliest.
Changes to government legislation mean that the watchdog is not required to carry out routine inspections until at least 1 August.
The news comes just one week after education secretary Gavin Williamson said Ofsted would inspect schools to check how they have spent coronavirus catch-up funding.

Warning over risks to pupils from Covid-19 'fake news'
The coronavirus crisis heightens the need for schools to teach pupils to identify fake news online due to the risk of "spurious medical advice" being spread across the internet.
That's according to the House of Lords select committee on democracy and digital technologies, which has written a report warning that the Department for Education needs to do more to address the risks posed to pupils by fake news.

£1bn for school buildings - but heads say billions more needed
A a 10-year school rebuilding programme has been announced by the government today, backed by £1 billion in funding starting in 2020-21.
Any extra money will be welcomed, especially after planned capital spending on schools was cut by £500 million in last year's spending review.
That came after the capital funding pot was raided to fund an increase in core spending for schools in 2017.
As heads are pointing out, a damning National Audit Office report three years ago found that £6.7 billion was needed to return all school buildings to satisfactory or better condition.
So how far will the new funding package go and which schools will be prioritised? Read the full story here.
In other news, over the weekend a new shadow education secretary was named by Labour: Kate Green. You can read about the appointment here.
