Welcome to the Tes coronavirus liveblog. The outbreak of Covid-19 is an uncertain time for everyone, but schools and teachers are likely to face more disruption than many.

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 as william.stewart@tesglobal.comcharlotte.santry@tesglobal.com and Mary-Louise.Clews@tes.com
