From Department for Education: Education and childcare during coronavirus Guidance

Attending nursery, childminders, school and college On 4 January 2021, the Prime Minister announced a new national lockdown. During the lockdown, schools, and colleges should only allow vulnerable children and young people and the children of critical workers to attend. All other school and college children and young people will learn remotely until at least the February half term.

‘In the event of disruption to face to face education at schools due to coronavirus (COVID-19), DfE can provide support to help disadvantaged children and young people who are otherwise unable to access remote education.

Examples of this include disadvantaged children:

  • with no digital devices in their household
  • whose only available device is a smartphone
  • with a single device in their household that’s being shared with more than one other family member
  • who do not have a fixed broadband connection at home

Schools, maintained schools, academy trusts and hospital schools, as well as further education providers who have enrolled 14 to 16 year olds, are included within this offer. They will receive an allocation of devices to be used to support disadvantaged pupils in the following groups if they do not have access to a digital device through other means:

  • pupils in years 3 to 11
  • clinically extremely vulnerable children across all year groups who are shielding on official advice
  • children in all year groups unable to access remote education whilst attending school on a hospital site

Orders can be placed when:

  • face to face education within a school is disrupted following official advice
  • a school supports a clinically extremely vulnerable child who is shielding following official advice
  • a school is supporting disadvantaged children who live in an area subject to local restrictions which means they’re unable to attend.’
