Join the Tes news team as we discuss the biggest news in education this week, including the school forced to shut after a visit from an Ofsted inspector who tested positive for Covid.
The incident may have strengthened the case for Ofsted inspections going online, with headteachers warning that a return to full inspections from January is now "unthinkable".
We also discuss the mounting pressure on the Department for Education not to go ahead with next year's GCSE and A-level exams, following calls to scrap next summer's exams in Wales and an appeal for similar action from the North of England.
We talk about how headteachers have had to take on extra work by becoming "track and tracers" and how low-paid support staff in schools could be reluctant to self-isolate through lack of sick pay.
And we end with the story of a national supermarket chain's gesture of thanks to school staff for their efforts during the pandemic – offering them a 10 per cent discount in all stores until the new year.
