    My understanding is it affects everone different.

    The common symptoms are high temperature and/or a persistent cough.

    thanks xxx I am getting annoyed with myself for getting to caught up with this!

    but its getting closer ... DDs school now closed for years 8, 9 & 10 until after Easter Holidays - so middle of April for us. I'm almost wondering about shutting and being done with it! but, financially, i need to carry on working until such times as we're told to shut!

    Yes I believe and may be wrong that you would exclude the child of the mother with symptoms as her household should go into isolation.

    DD's current school is still open, although the Headteacher has sensibly stopped all assemblies/collective worship, which typically force the children to be in closer proximity to each other than they are in the classroom. They now have to do collective worship in the classroom each morning instead. He hasn't said it is because of the virus, but the children have all put two and two together and think it is exactly because of that.

    Our high school has stopped all external school clubs.

    No travel to other high schools for sixth form

    No parents evenings etc

    All school trips cancelled till the end of the year

    Our local school is still open but have stopped breakfast club and after school clubs.....I have lost a couple of my schoolies as they are now self isolating as a family because one of them has cough/cold, Mum is 100% sure its just a normal cough/cold virus but is sticking to the rules.

    Well it seems Scottish schools will be closed from Friday and Nicola sturgeon says they may not reopen until summer. We should hear in England at 5pm. She mentioned schools and nurseries but hope there is clarification here about whether childminders are included . I have no idea how many of us will face major financial hardship if we have to close for months!

    She said private nurseries and childminders will be needed to help through this time so I’m hoping that means we’ll be fine to stay open!

    Not looking forward to the prospect of months inside with kids though!

    It peeves me a little bit that they think so little of us normally with low funding rates, but now they want us to take up the slack and provide essential childcare. We're only valued when they need us

    One of my mums has told me that if schools close she'll have no work so will keep her daughter at home and won't be able to pay me.

    There's not really much I can do. I can't insist on payment if she hasn't got the money. I'm hoping the government comes up with some decent help for families and the self-employed.

    That's because we're superheroes!

    I've been talking to my mum's ... 6 use funding and top it up if necessary, 4 are 'front line staff's in one respect or the other, the rest either run their own companies or work for companies that they should be able to work for from home and in theory think should be ok. ... it's just a waiting game.
