The head teacher of Herne junior school, Tony Markham, explains how he and his team have organised the school for a mixture of remote working and in-school lessons for the children of key workers and from vulnerable backgrounds.

He also praises the generosity of Petersfield after the school has received donations to help provide laptops to children and he calls on the Government and Ofsted inspectors to provide help and leadership at this difficult moment.
