  • "According to information on the BBC Essex website, 88% of schools are open as normal. Well done to those schools, but it does beg the question as to why some are closing. Only 10% are completely closed (the other 2% being partially open either to certain year groups or for part of the day).

    I hope the 10% are feeling suitably silly. No doubt a small number will have legitimate reasons (e.g. remote rural locations, boiler problems, etc.), but it is particularly telling when closed schools are located very close to open schools."
